[R-pkg-devel] Data for unit testing in packages

Do you guys have any suggestions on how to store data for unit testing?

I am implementing some methods to estimate matrix entries from the
marginals.  The input of the function is the row and column sums and the
output is a N x N matrix.

What I am doing today is constructing the expected output by hand.

One example I am testing is a 7 x 7 matrix, which is fine to just put the
code to create it on the test script.

However, I also want to create tests on larger examples, say a 1000 x 1000
matrix, in which it would not be very handy to leave the code on the script.

Do you have any suggestions or best practices for that?
