converting an switch to an outlet

Is it possible to convert a light switch to an outlet? How do I go about it?

This will depend on how the switch is currently wired.

What colors and how many wires are in the switch box. You will need to describe these to get the correct answer. Is there a ground (bare) wire in the box?
