This format stores information about the formatting of a text document - paragraphs, lists, indents, alignments, and much more. Microsoft Word DOC files can include textual information and numerous images, graphics, scripts, and diagrams. DOC is an extension in the binary file format, which begins with an information block that acts as a key element of the entire collection of data files. Such binary files include a relatively large amount of information about the formatting of a text document. Traditionally, the extension has become widespread for creating text-format documents in a wide range of OS. In this format, files are opened by any, including modern versions of the Word editor or its analogs from free packages like Open Office, Libre Office, or utilities like Corel WordPerfect.

File category documents
Description The organization of texts in rows applies to the TXT file format. Such text files oppose binaries, which have data that is interpreted as a text. For example images or sounds that are converted to coded forms. Raw text files can possess texts presented in formatted or in ways that are not formatted. The text files are elementary and are used for storing data in most cases.
Technical details Raw text files are not highly formatted, and this means they meet accepted formats by the system terminal and the basic text editor. These files are taken and used universally since any text-based program can read them. This is because it uses a standard form of encoding, making it easy for different language users to utilize the files. The ASCII- specific text files can be used in place of each other and can be read using Unix, Mac, and Windows. UTF-8 differs from ASCII, and this is attributed to Byte order mark differences, but it remains the most character set. Its compatibility with ASCII is backward.
