Purpose: Discuss the feature where data is embedded within a vap file.

Audience: Developers and interested scientists.

1. Introduction

%{PWD} can be used within a vap to provide references to data relative to the vap location. This also means that when the file default.vap is stored in a zip file along with relative references, we now have a complete and consistent way to make a vap that contains the data.

2. To Consider

%{PWD,orig=http://autoplot.org/data/somedata.cdf}/data/somedata.cdf allow references to original data location, and Autoplot would be able to check for updates.
