Hello all,
I’m currently doing work for a local cinema that wants session times to be displayed as .swf's on a few monitors in the foyer, but I’m having difficulties writing the script for it, here's the situation:

The session times are generated daily as a text file by the ticketing software, it looks like this:

12 1 0950 101 0 330 0 M MADE OF HONOUR
1 1 1000 95 0 400 0 M WHAT HAPPENS IN
6 1 1000 95 0 154 0 M SMART PEOPLE
9 1 1010 92 0 300 0 PG MISS PETTIGREW
5 1 1015 126 0 408 0 M IRON MAN
3 1 1020 92 0 347 0 M SMOTHER
14 1 1030 101 0 38 0 M MADE OF HONOUR
11 1 1035 111 0 186 0 MA15+ FORGETTING SARAH
8 1 1050 108 0 276 0 MA15+ STREET KINGS
10 1 1055 123 0 160 0 M PAINTED VEIL
4 1 1100 95 0 833 0 M WHAT HAPPENS IN
15 1 1100 126 0 42 0 M IRON MAN
7 1 1115 108 0 209 0 MA15+ DECEPTION
2 1 1145 126 0 441 0 M IRON MAN
12 2 1200 101 0 330 0 M MADE OF HONOUR
13 1 1200 95 0 56 0 M WHAT HAPPENS IN
6 2 1205 100 0 154 0 MA15+ UNTRACEABLE
1 2 1210 95 0 400 0 M WHAT HAPPENS IN
etc...

What I’m trying to generate in the .swf is something that looks like this

Made of Honour (M) 9:50 10:30 12:00
What Happens in (M) 10:00 11:00 12:00 12:10
etc...

Additional requirements are the times disappearing after the session has started as well as session times 13-16 being displayed as a separate .swf (first class seating)

So i guess my main question is "can i dynamically load text from a multi-line txt file without editing the txt file to include variable assignment? ('content=' etc)"

* the txt file generated is intended for an led display and is apparently a Texas Instruments standard
