Scripto Example: Retrieve an asset-uploaded file

    This example shows how a file can be retrieved via Scripto and then displayed on a Web page. Precondition is that an asset has an uploaded file. This script assumes the file is there and that it is not extremely large (under 1 megabyte). This example uses base64 encoding to convert the file into a string. Future versions of Scripto will support other data streams so that base64 encoding will not be necessary.
