JavaScript fs.readFile
ajayprashar (1)


My name is Ajay and I am learning JavaScript using

When I use the code below I receive the error that 'fs.readFile' is NOT a function. Does anyone know how to use this function within

import fs from 'fs';

let ourStuff = fs.readFile('G:\DATA\git\ipromise\ipromise.txt','utf8', callback);

node v10.15.2 linux/amd64
import fs from 'fs';
