EPS files created on Classic Macs running on MacOS 9 or earlier
(please don't write OS9, as that is a completely different operating
system) will be with us for decades to stay (since PostScript creation
on Macs was convenient even when you did most of your processing on
Unix-like platforms).  And I should not be surprised if the same was
the case with text files.
