Many times when trying to test an algorithm or understand code written by someone else, it is beneficial to run the code with data you understand already. For that purpose, I have several standard types of data that I can quickly load or synthesize. I know that these datasets do not have NaN, Inf, or any other entries that often wreck algorithms that do not need to handle them.
