Hi, I wonder where I could get the directory "text_files" so that I could create a new terminal folder from that directory? Thanks


The reference to the 'directory' on the project page is a link to sample text files accessible in the browser. If you click on the textfiles link on the project page (or here), it will take you to webpage with links to text files. The intention is for you to download these (Right-click - Save Link As...) into a file locally (ideally in the same folder that you mount in the docker image). This folder could be 'textfiles', but it could also be called something different (if you look at the project specification, we should be able to pass any directory name to your program and have it work).

Hope this helps!
