I'm having a problem while getting a file from a form. I can only read it's name, but not its body. How can I read file's body?

I'm sending the file with:
<form action="/" method="post" id="media_form">
<h1>Media Content</h1>
<input type="file" name="file" id="file">
<textarea type="text" name="text" id="text" placeholder="Text content."></textarea>
<br>
<input type="submit" value="Publish.">
</form>
<form action="/" method="post" id="media_form">
<h1>Media Content</h1>
<input type="file" name="file" id="file">
<textarea type="text" name="text" id="text" placeholder="Text content."></textarea>
<br>
<input type="submit" value="Publish.">
</form>

In Deno, you can use the Deno.File interface to read the contents of a file. However, the documentation does not provide a specific example of how to handle file uploads with Oak. Here's a general approach: 1. When a file is uploaded via a form, it's typically available in the request body. 2. You would need to parse the request body to access the uploaded file. This might involve using a middleware in Oak that handles multipart form data. 3. Once you have access to the file, you can read its contents using the read() method on the Deno.File object. Remember to always handle files carefully and securely, especially when dealing with file uploads from users. Please note that this advice is not directly from the documentation, as it does not provide a clear answer to your question.
