Hi Evan,

Assuming you are talking about an input file from:

<param type="data" .../>

I don't think you can set a default - the possible files will
depend on the current history, so could be zero, one or
many files. Also, how would how specify a specific file?
They would have Galaxy assigned *.dat filenames on disk,
while the names could have been set to anything by the user.

My guess is you may be better off defining a new datatype
(a subclass of txt perhaps?).

Regards,

Peter
