I am testing students of Algorithms course. since the grade is equivalent to the run-time of their program, the tests given are very large text files, therefore I prefer to keep the input texts as execution files instead of copying the whole text into the evaluate_cases section.
I tried using this guide which you recommended: http://www.science.smith.edu/dftwiki/index.php/Tutorial:_Moodle_VPL_--_A_Multi-File_Java_Program_with_Data_File
However, even when I click the keep files when running on my text files the VPL dosen't seem to accept this kind of argument as in the guide.
for example when I type
The VPL interprets the "input.txt"(which is a file I kept in the execution files) as a string to enter the student program.
I would appreciate your help of how to run a test case with a text file of my own.
