Text Files

Text files are standard ASCII data files containing text records. Records are stored in the order in which they were written to the file, and are accessible in sequential order. Text files are comprised of variable length records. A carriage return/line feed terminates each record following the final byte of data in the record. Fields are variable-sized, and may or may not be delimited (depending on the application that created the text file).

Text files are primarily used to import and export standard ASCII files with Comet. They may also be used to store Internet Basic source programs, as the Internet Basic compiler supports both text files and Comet editor keyed files as source files.
