The advantages of saving data in binary form:

  • Stores the data in binary form.
  • Files can be either processed sequentially or randomly.
  • No delimiters are used for a line.
  • No internal translation takes place.
  • It takes less space to store data. For example, the integer 4564 occupies 2 bytes in memory.

The advantages of saving data in text form:

  • Stores the data in ASCII characters.
  • Files processed sequentially in the forward direction.
  • Delimiter EOL is used for End of line and EOF is used to mark the end of file.
  • Internal translation takes place during EOL and EOF.
  • It takes more space to store data. For example, the integer 4564 occupies 4 bytes in memory.
