vvvv uses Unicode internally but it allows you to read and write plain text files in any encoding you like.

Plain Text files are good for:

  • saving texts
  • saving values in a human-readable form

Their weakness:

  • big size of the files
  • conversion of values into characters & loosing precision

Files that contain markup or other meta-data are generally considered plain-text.

Examples in your vvvv\girlpower\ directory:

  • \IO\Files

...and many more

Any file on your harddrive can be read using the Reader (Raw). Its raw bytes can be converted into one of vvvvs datatypes or used as they are, only you know the limits. Raw data can also be saved into a file using the Writer (Raw).

Examples in your vvvv\girlpower\ directory:

  • IO\Files
