Shared object tutorial

Hi guys. I do not understand this line of the code from the shared objects tutorial:

[AS]user = SharedObject.getLocal(“user_profile”);[/AS]

what is “user profile”?

does code create file or is the user already supposed to have the file? I just don’t understand that part. THANKS flashies

it creates a sol file named user profile where you gonna store data inside that file.if it exists,the file will be replaced.

thank you so much!!!

what does .sol standfor?

it’s a shared object file. Use search *.sol or the name directly and u’ll know when your file keep. You can find tutorial about it almost in every flash forum.
