Should you need datasets that come with R and additional packages (you can access them via data()) in one single file, here’s what I did to dump the entire workspace into one file:

rm(list=ls()) data(list = data()$results[, 3]) # put datasets into your global environment sink("datasets.txt") for (i in 1:length(ls())) { cat("*****************", "\n") print(ls()[i]) cat("*****************", "\n") print(get(ls()[i])) cat("\n") } sink()

This code can easily be adapted to dump individual dataset into its own file.
