Working with Text Files

  • Keir Thomas

Abstract

Windows views text files as just another file type, but to Ubuntu, they can be essential components that make the system work. Configuration files are stored as plain text, and program documentation is also stored as text. This is clearly different from Windows, where it’s very likely any information you’re supposed to read will be contained in a Windows Help file, a rich text format (RTF) file, or even a Microsoft Word document.
