Note[edit]

Direct loading[edit]

  • Given the data file data.txt located at <path>:
1970    45    63
1980    52    59
1990    59    52
2000    63    45
  • This data can easily be loaded into R using the following commands:
setwd("<path>")                # change working directory
data <- read.table("data.txt")  # load data
