What category would tokenized BASIC programs (as stored in various types of early personal computer) fit into? Dan Tobias (talk) 21:06, 3 November 2012 (UTC)

Perhaps a new category for source code. Or perhaps serialization. Or both. Nothing really stops a format from appearing in multiple categories. Todo for the future, I have an idea about assigning a format two categories, which might be called "usage type" and "data type". Usage type might be image format, audio format, or text document format (for example MS Word doc would end up here.) Data type would be stuff like XML based format, proprietary binary, plain text, etc. I need to polish that suggestion. Anyway, I recommend a new category for source code.
