I'm a Fiddler Classic user and I would like to know if it's possible to read a local text file into a variable.

I will use this variable (say, 'file_contents') to replace a string in a web page with the contents of the local file. The replacement code looks like this:
var oRegEx = /string_to_replace/;
oBody = oBody.replace(oRegEx, file_contents);
How can I do that, please?

Thank you,

Alexander

It is possible to write to a file (see this thread), so you should do the same in the other direction. A potential setback would be that the read operation could delay the whole execution of the request.

No answers yet. Maybe you can help?
