>From the help page for readLines:

" If the final line is incomplete (no final EOL marker) the
     behaviour depends on whether the connection is blocking or not.
     For a non-blocking text-mode connection the incomplete line is
     pushed back, silently.  For all other connections the line will be
     accepted, with a warning. "

You can disable the warning with;

readLines('your_file', warn = FALSE)
