It is a text, MS word or any other text editing file with written instructions for search engine robot / spider to know where to crawl and where not to crawl on your site. It is added into the root directory of your domain.
Each file/folder is needed to be entered as a new line for the bot to exclude crawl through it.
However, it is not essential that you should always type instructions/script inside the .txt file.
Just having even a blank robots.txt file indicates an acknowledgement from you for the search engines that they have free access to your site.

It is highly recommended to add a robots text file to your main domain and all sub-domains on your site.

A robots.txt file tells search engine crawlers which URLs the crawler can access on your site. This is used mainly to avoid overloading your site with requests; it is not a mechanism for keeping a web page out of Google.
