If you want to keep it as text, then you can just put it in the code:

mydata <-
"Mazda RX4",21,6,160,110,3.9,2.62,16.46,0,1,4,4
"Mazda RX4 Wag",21,6,160,110,3.9,2.875,17.02,0,1,4,4
"Datsun 710",22.8,4,108,93,3.85,2.32,18.61,1,1,4,1

and then you can read from it via text connections:

If I put them in data/, then R CMD check asks me to document them but I’d prefer it if they floated beneath the surface, without the users awareness.
