Hi !

I am new to R, and using the MAC version onto Mac OS 9.1. My question concerns 
the problem I encounter when I try to read some data I have using the 
read.table function. I always get an error of type : Error in scan(file = 
file, what = what, sep = sep, quote = quote, dec = dec,  :
	line 1 did not have 9 elements

Here is my code:

varnames <- c("names", "symbol", "price", "displ", "gas", "weight", "reliab", 
"origin", "type")

cardat <- read.table("PowerMac 7300:Logiciels de 
Statistiques:rm162:car02.txt", col.names=varnames, 

Can you advice me ?

Thanks in advance,

Pascale Tremblay
