rdataset is a collection of 761 datasets that were originally distributed
alongside the statistical software environment "R" and some of its add-on
packages. The exported csv-files are taken from http://vincentarelbundock.github.io/Rdatasets/.
Datasets which are available in R can be used in Scilab with rdataset. The
toolbox needs around 50 MByte.
The same can be done in Scilab
