Your question is somewhat vague. Can you elaborate some? Do you want to create a text file?
ASCII was developed in the early days of computing to basically assign a numeric value to a alphanumeric character (A-Z, 0-9). Shell scripts and configuration files are all ASCII text files. Programs are binary. Data files can be either text or binary depending on the application.
