R version 1.2
OS. Windows NT, service pack 6.0
Here is what I have in a text file called tmp.txt
i.e. the file has only one line of data (to keep things simple)
I issue the command
Read 3 items
 "ab" "5" "bc,cd,5"
Why is it not reading 5 items? If i remove the apostrophe in the third item
(ie. b'c => bc) then scan reads all 5 items as I would expect it.
Is this a bug, or am I missing something about how apostrophe's are treated?
Thanks in advance,
