The READFILE tag offers access to textual data files. The tag does not support
absolute or '..' (parent) directory access. With this tag, files can only be
read in the script directory. For security reasons, this is by design. The LINES
attribute allows the data to be read from a regular text file, and stored to a
named LIST object (one text line per element).
Note: READFILE supports "virtual" paths. These paths can be configured
by the system administrator.
