The getting data in manual explains different ways to get data into your splunk instance.
If it is going to be one time data input then you can make use of Splunk Web
http://docs.splunk.com/Documentation/Splunk/6.1.2/Data/UseSplunkWeb

You can also place the files in some directory and configure your splunk instance to monitor that directory.

If you have any doubts on what kind of data splunk indexes. Here it is: Splunk Enterprise decompresses archive files before it indexes them. It can handle these common archive file types: tar, gz, bz2, tar.gz, tgz, tbz, tbz2, zip, and z.
