To the R experts,
I am currently playing with a program which was designed so that the outputs
are to be read in "Surfer". I do not have the program, but the files, can
but put into excel and graphed. I figured i could do the same thing with R.
If I open the file with excel, and put the text into columns, and separate
them by spaces, I can then graph it. But how do I do this in R? Once I have
done all that in excel and saved it, I can then open it and do a 3d suface
plot in R, but I would like to skip the excel step.
Each line looks like this:
0.2100209E+03 0.2109997E+03 0.2111866E+03 0.2095219E+03 0.2079958E+03

The first thing I have to do is remove the first 4 lines (which are just
file information), and then separate each value into its own column. How do
I go about doing that?
