This node can be used to read data from an ASCII file or URL location.
The location is read from a scope variable, provided by the input port.
It can be configured to read in various formats.
When you open the node's configuration dialog and provide a variable name that contains a valid file location, it tries to guess the reader's settings by analyzing the content of the file. Check the results of these settings in the preview table. If the data shown is not correct or an error is reported, you can adjust the settings manually (see below).
In order for the available variables to have values assigned to them, the predecessor node should be executed before the settings are adjusted.
In most cases a node will be connected to the port that assigns different values to variables in a loop.
