Converting text files to files that can be run in the terminal.


I'm a new Linux user and I'd like to know how to covert scripts that are downloaded as text files into a file that I can execute in the terminal.
Please could somebody explain what to tyoe into the terminal to execute the program as well.

Thanks very much.
