% This 'wizard' can be used to set the CoSMoMVPA configuration paths
% for exercises and demonstration outputs (in CoSMoMVPA's 'examples/'
% directory).
%
% It asks to select the directories for the 'tutorial_data_path'
% and 'output_data_path'. The former requires tutorial data, which can be
% downloaded from cosmomvpa.org/download.html
%
% It will store a '.cosmomvpa.cfg' file in either the user's home directory
% (on Linux / OSX), or in any available userpath() directory.
%
% Selecting cancel at any time will close this wizard.
