How to import *lots* of parameters?

Hi there,

I'm fairly new to QuantConnect, fairly familiar with C# - I'm having troubles figuring out how to read parameters from my own files. I have a .csv document: each row has a symbol and two numbers next to it (eg. "SPY, 0.01, 0.02"). There are about 200 rows for different symbols. Is there a way I can easily make this data accessible by my program? I've tried creating an extra file in my project with the *.csv, but I'm not allowed to use the system.IO library.

Uploading it on Dropbox and accessing via HTTP should work. See the use of WebClient.DownloadString in the DropboxUniverseSelectionAlgorithm example.
