  Yes, obviously, my mistake.

  I tried that but hist() also expects a numeric vector, and that's
what I can't find out how to do: extracting the data in a suitable
form from the file.

  On "retr;"

I get :
"                V1
1    -9.483434e-04
2     1.817336e-03
3     0.000000e+00
4     1.081303e-02"

and so on until 2527, which is the number of entries.

Thank you again for your reply,
