1. Executable code, especially a "pure code" portion shared between multiple instances of a program running in a multitasking operating system.

Compare English.

2. Textual material in the mainstream sense; data in ordinary ASCII or EBCDIC representation (see flat ASCII). "Those are text files; you can review them using the editor."

These two contradictory senses confuse hackers too.
