Dear R useRs,

I have big (23000 rows), vertical bar delimited file:

A00001|Text a,Text b, Text c|345
A00002|Text bla|456

Try using

A <- read.table('filename.txt', header=FALSE,sep='\|')
process stop at line 11975 with warning message:
number of items read is not a multiple of the number of columns

I have no problems with processing similar file, which is only 10000 
rows long?

Any suggestion what's the problem here. Thank's in advance.

Cheers, Andrej
