Hi Meng-Chuan,

what package, which version, which version of R, what platform are you 

I have seen similar errors from marray::readGalfile, they were an 
interaction between the "locale" (i.e. the way your operating system 
and/or R represents characters as bytes) and the way that that funtion 
is programmed.

Hard to say more though without further details.
