- There are many functions other than
read.table()for importing data. For example, the functions
read.delimare specific for importing comma-separated and tab-separated text files. In practice, these functions do the same thing as
read.table, but they don’t require you to specify a
separgument. Personally, I always use
read.table()because it always works and I don’t like trying to remember unnecessary functions.
