Yes, you understand correctly my case.

There is a reason that justifies my request: I often use my scripts as examples within a didactic context. They are exhaustively commented, for instance. I consider it preferable to have all the needed data in the same script since I cannot be sure that potential future users who find my script will also find the associated file with the data (sometimes one downloads a file for future use without checking whether we are downloading all the associated files).

Then they should also change the script according to the particular directory tree where they choose to place the data, which is an unnecessary distraction from the very point of the example.

I agree that it wouldn't be convenient nor practical to work in this way with very large data sets, but some 1000 data is not unusual.

I have to create a vector from a plain text containing about 700 decimal 
numbers, each one with several digits.
Is there a simple way to do this other than [...] saving the data as a
text file
To be sure I understand well :
in your Scilab script, you have something like

foo = [3.14, 1.414 ; 1.732 ...

with the 700 numbers written inside your script?

Of course your request is legitimate but IMHO, this is really not the best 
I warmly recommend to have the 700 numbers in a separate file.
