Information about TXT and ZIP file formats
|Full name||TXT - Raw text file||ZIP - ZIP Archive|
|File extension||.txt||.zip, .zipx|
|Developed by||Microsoft||Phil Katz, PKWARE, Inc.|
|Type of format||Plain text||Data compression|
|Description||On most operating systems the name text file refers to file format that allows only plain text content with very little formatting (e.g., no bold or italic types). Such files can be viewed and edited on text terminals or in simple text editors.||ZIP is an archive file format that supports lossless data compression. A .ZIP file may contain one or more files or directories that may have been compressed. The .ZIP file format permits a number of compression algorithms, though DEFLATE is the most common.|
|Technical details||Text file refers to a type of container, while plain text refers to a type of content. Text files can contain plain text, but they are not limited to such. At a generic level of description, there are two kinds of computer files: text files and binary files.||ZIP files are archives that store multiple files. .ZIP allows contained files to be compressed using many different methods, as well as simply storing a file without compressing it. Each file is stored separately, allowing different files in the same archive to be compressed using different methods.|
