I am new to Salesforce. I have a large xml file in Chatter/Files that I need to download and process on the client. How can I get the file? I am able to get static resources via ajax, but this file is larger than the 5mb limit. In the chatter UI, the download file link url is https://c.cs17.content.force.com/sfc/servlet.shepherd/version/download/068g0000000TQFu?asPdf=false&operationContext=CHATTER
I see an entry in the rest api docs that seems like a better way to go. https://developer.salesforce.com/docs/atlas.en-us.chatterapi.meta/chatterapi/connect_resources_files_content.htm
Can I use REST to retrieve to get the file from the client. I am using jQuery and this is a visualforce page.
