    The "text" file that is readable by the naked eye because it only contains the letters a-z, numbers, carriage returns and punctuation marks is called "ASCII file". However, a binary file is not readable by the naked eye because it contains the ASCII characters in addition to binary codes which a machine can only read.

    ASCII can be read with naked eyes, whereas you can't read a binary file with naked eye. Only a pc or computer can read a binary file.
