THE TEXTFILES DIRECTORY

The files on TEXTFILES.COM are maintained by somewhat arbitrary guidelines, so if a file you're looking for is not in one section, try a few others. Files are often in the "8+3" format, but since they're coming from all sorts of sources, this isn't guaranteed. Our focus is on the years 1980-1995, but files from before and after sometime sneak in.

Many people want to download an entire directory and sift through it

on their own time. To assist this research, most of the directories have

a file at the end that is an archive of that entire directory. It is

compressed as well, so it takes less time than downloading the files one

by one. Please feel free to download that way.
