I am currently studying for Comptia Linux+ exam and I am at the Shared Library chapter. Among all, it says that the /etc/ld.so.cache file is a binary file, but in my case it is not. It is a regular file, whose content I can easily view and fair enough it contains libraries locations.

ls -l /etc/ld.so.cache 
-rw-r--r--. 1 root root 154135 Feb 11 11:17 /etc/ld.so.cache

-rw-r--r--. 1 root root 154135 Feb 11 11:17 /etc/ld.so.cache

I've seen it in several materials that the cache file is a binary one and I am curious why this mismatch? Is that file's type distro-dependent? I am using Fedora Workstation 27
