This recipe helps you read a text file in R


Recipe Objective

How to read a text file in R? A text file (.txt extension) is a plain text file which can be accessed using notepad. R can read files with different formats like text file, csv file etc which are stored outside the R environment. Reading a file means, accessing the file in the R environment to perform various operations on the data. This recipe gives an example on how to read a text file in R..

Step 1 - Read a text file

A text file can be read from an url. Syntax for reading a text file - readLines("x.txt")

x <- readLines("") head(x)

A text file can also be imported by adding it to te files by clicking into 'Upload to session storage'

x <- readLines("R_61_SampleTextFile.txt") head(x)
