What is an ADOC file?

Text document that contains plain text; may include special syntax, such as square brackets, periods, and colons that allow the file to be displayed with custom formatting; may also be converted to a different format, such as .HTML or .EPUB, using a text processor like Asciidoctor.

More Information

AsciiDoc files can be used for multiple purposes, but are commonly used for software documentation. For example, many programs available on the GitHub website are documented using AsciiDoc.

NOTE: ADOC files are saved with an ".adoc" extension to indicate that they contain AsciiDoc syntax. However, they are saved in the same format as a plain text file, which has a .TXT extension.
