Need to read cfm file.
Posted on 2004-11-14
I need to understand how an application, written in Coldfusion, works so that I can convert the application/site to ASP.
I have attempted to view the .cfm files using a text editor and a number of applications. Yet, the contents of the .cfm file are unreadable ... the source is in binary format.
My understanding is that .cfm files contains scripts, which I am assuming, are simply text. Why is it that I cannot view the files correctly?
Can anyone recommend an IDE which will allow me to view the files or enlighten me as to why I am unable to view them? Pardon my ignorance but I am an ASP developer attempting to understand the logic written in Coldfusion.
