Hi. I am writing a program to read in different types of files from a
GUI. While it's easy to read different types of text files, I am
stymied how to make R execute the input.
Ideally I could get the command from input and dereference it like
where command would be read.dta or read.table or read.xport or any of
the similar commands.
Also, is there a way to make associative arrays?
It would be nice to be able to get the format from input and then have
Otherwise, I guess I'll just do cascading if's.
