How to access local files of filesystem in android emulator?

I'm using ubuntu 10.04 for android development.I want to know whether there is a method to access local files(say text files,web pages) of the filesystem in android emulator.

Answer Source

You can use the adb command which comes in the tools dir of the SDK:

adb shell

It will give you a command line prompt where you can browse and access the filesystem. Or you can extract the files you want:

adb pull /sdcard/the_file_you_want.txt

Also, if you use eclipse with the ADT, there's a view to browse the file system (Window->Show View->Other... and choose Android->File Explorer)
