[R] scan question

In R 0.90.1 is there a way of stopping scan() from rewinding to the
beginning of the file?  Basically I have a mega-file (250Mb!!!) that I
want to read and process in 301 line chunks, each line having 151 numbers
on it.

If I do
for (i in 1:many){

it appears to do what I want but as the chunks get further down the file
it gets slower and slower.

So can I stop the rewind?
