Storing Text On Disk
Can a disk drive store text by page?
John B. Gentilucci
Disk files can contain any information you want. However, trying to store a text file by pages would be a time-consuming and inefficient use of disk space. Most word processors allow you to set up limits for page size and also will automatically paginate the printout. You'll find it much easier to store files by chapter or subheadings, and let your computer keep track of the pages when printing the text. This way you'll also be able to make revisions without restructuring your files because of a change in page sizes.
