ASCII text

ASCII text,

Definition of ASCII text:

  1. Plainest and simplest format in which text documents generated by personal computers can be stored or transmitted. Whereas word processing programs store documents with special instructions (type font, font size, enhancements, etc.), ASCII-text stores only letters, numbers, and symbols in their plain form. This results in a data file that is very compact and can be read by virtually every computer.
