The WoW Lua environment does not include some of the normal Lua libraries, such as io.

You cannot read or write files from a WoW AddOn.

Try opening the file with "Notepad" if you're on a Window's system.

If your looking to mess with Lua alot, check out Notepad++

You can also open in Edit Plus which is the same as Notepad++. There is no big difference between them.
