collections of digital information for storage on a computer. Under the Microsoft Windows operating system, types of information are distinguished by a three letter file name extension, such as .txt (text), .doc (Microsoft Word document) or . mp3 (one form of musical or audio information). Note that file naming conventions under other operating systems do not necessarily use this form of name.
Files are collections of logically related items, much like a file cabinet contains file folders made up of similar types of information. For example, in one file cabinet you may find file folders containing information about your customers, while in another cabinet may be the folders for your suppliers.

We will put all of the PICK/BASIC programs, which are each considered "items," into a file called BP.
