digital file

A collection of data or software stored in the computer. Everything permanently saved in a computer system is a digital file, identified by file name. An entire digital file, such as an image, spreadsheet or executable program, is often read into the computer's memory and thus duplicated in memory temporarily for display or editing. However, when dealing with databases, very often only parts of a file are read into memory for processing. See digital, file and memory.
