Standard ASCII Text File
Unformatted text in a file that can be loaded and
modified by Edit (or any text editor).

Unlike binary data files or word processor
document files, text files contain no special
formatting codes embedded in the text--only the
text of the lines, with each line ending with
CR+LF (0dH, 0ah).
■ AUTOEXEC.BAT and CONFIG.SYS are text files.
■ Most configuration files (.INI) are text files.
■ I/O Redirection uses text files.
