A file with an .ADOC extension is an AsciiDoc file that contains plain text. It uses AsciiDocu syntax (such as dots and square brackets) that allow the file to be displayed with custom formatting or converted to a different format.

AsciiDoc are often used for software documentation, but can be used for many other purposes as well. For example, the contents of an ADOC file might be used to generate an .HTML page or eBook file.

Important: 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.
