Data File Handling in C
Data File handling is the way to store data permanently on computer.
There are two ways of storing data in files:
1. Text Format
In this case data is stored in form of ASCII characters. Data is stored in files with every line ended by new line character. They can be read by human beings.
2. Binary Format
In this case, data is stored in the binary form so these files are not readable. Data stored in such files can’t be interpreted by any text editor.
Binary files are faster than text files as there is no data conversion to take place in binary files.
