whereby <chapter> and <example> have to be replaced with their actual numbers and <name> is a prefix for files belonging to a particular example problem.

The data of a particular problem are given with plain ASCII-files with a naming scheme

They should be editable with basic editors on all systems, but should remain as plain ASCII-files after editing. The types for the problem data are as follows:
