text is the type identifier for a built-in file type, whose values are sequences of lines. A line is a sequence of characters and every line in a text file is terminated by an end-of-line character except possibly the last line (see Termination of all lines in text files).
The simple program below writes a short message to a text file.
program message(fOut); const OutputFileName='message.txt'; var fOut : text; begin rewrite(fOut, OutputFileName); writeln(fOut, 'This file is generated by a very simple program'); writeln(fOut, 'which was written to help explain the "text" file type.'); close(fOut); end.
