How can I extract xy coordinates from a ESRI Point shapefile? I would like to add these Lat. Long coordinates to the shapefile attribute table.

In ver 9.3 there was an option to "Write features to text file" under ArcToolBox -> Samples -> Data Management. Now Samples toolbox is deprecated from ArcGIS 10 version.

I checked online and there is some information about using some script. Am not familiar with script writing. Is there an easier way?
