Raw Data Input

Andy Wong
I'm a new user of the R and have already downloaded the latest version of
it.  Can anybody tells me how to input the raw data for analysis?  Thanks.

Depends on the format of "the raw data".

Did you read Ch.7 of "An Introduction to R" which ships with R?
Otherwise do so (and the rest of that manual too, for that matter).

I had a somewhat expanded coverage of data input in my ISCB course
last year. You might get something out of browsing the handouts at

Let alone the `R Data Import/Export Manual' which also ships with R and is
much more comprehensive.

Right, of course. My brain seems to be parked elsewhere today...
