Description PDF – is a cross-platform extension, which is necessary for the visualization of printed materials in electronic form. It is developed by Adobe Systems using separate PostScript resources. PDF documents can exist separately from the OS or hardware tools with which they were developed. Files of this format do not have restrictions on the length, number of types and image options, as they allow you to embed various multimedia tools, scan-line and vector images. They are supported by Adobe Reader and many browsers, providing the plugin is installed.
Technical details PDF supports color models CMYK, RGB, shades of gray, and also it has its own technical formats for performing the exchange of finished documents. Any file contains a description of a 2D or 3D document with all the necessary components (scan-line, vector graphics, text and more). The extension does not encode data associated with the software or OS that is used to develop and view the document.

File category documents
Description 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 forms that are not formatted. The text files are very simply 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 accepted and used universally since they can be read by any text-based program. This is because it uses a standard form of encoding which makes 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 still remains the most character set. Its compatibility with ASCII is backwards.
