Just 'Chris' thanks; I am not a teacher.

No. - appending ".txt" does not make a file a text-file (adding ".doc" does not make a file an MS-Word document) - a filename ending in ".txt" only suggests, but does not/cannot enforce, that a file is a text-file - files containing text, such as a C source-code file, do not need to be named ".txt" - I've never appended any suffix to the project's input files in Workshop 5 or other demonstrations
