5.2.1: How to Incorporate Data Files in Your Code Blocks- For C++

  • Page ID

  • There are a number of ways data files and can be incorporated into code blocks. However, ensure that you have already followed the steps in the introduction to the CKEditor Binder Plugin Tutorial here.

    Method 1: Using wget

    The first method that can be used to get a data file in your code block is with wget. Follow the example below and replace the example URL with the one attained in the previous step.

    !wget https://chem.libretexts.org/@api/deki/files/265970/auto-mpg.data

    Remember to press the "Run" button prior to pressing "OK". Printing both the code and output will provide the below result, to avoid this simply check "Insert Code Only" after pressing "Run" in order to achieve the example above.

    !wget https://chem.libretexts.org/@api/deki/files/265970/auto-mpg.data
