> I then do read.table but I keeping getting the following message
> > data <- read.table("ML4mm25.txt", header=T, sep=" ")
> Error in count.fields(file, sep, quote, skip) : 
>   can't open file ML4mm25.txt
> and when I try to count.fields, again there is error message. I was able
> to use the same command to read the file into S-plus with no problem, can
> you tell me what is wrong? also, what is the value for quote?
