Data

The following class data sets are all columnar, plain ascii text files:

You can download them to disk by placing the mouse pointer on the link, holding down the SHIFT key, and doing a left-click with the mouse.

If you are doing the class exercises on the EML Suns, you can simply link to these data sets rather than download them. To do this, issue the following comands from your home directory:

ln -s /class/data/e240/fall99/ex1-1.dat
ln -s /class/data/e240/fall99/ex1-2.dat
ln -s /class/data/e240/fall99/klem.dat
ln -s /class/data/e240/fall99/ex5.dat

These files will appear in your home directory as zero bytes in size; if you use the "ls -l" command, you will see they are actually simlinks. However, you will be able to read them into your programs as though they actually existed in your home directory.
