One line at a time! That must have taken forever!

Do you happen to know how many lines you could read in at once & still have
enough room to work with?

Thanks.  I wasn't aware that scan or read.table allowed you to read in a
single line, process it, output results, and then read in the next line. 
This is what I need to do because the data set is too large to hold in RAM. 
I did manage to do this with readLines and overcome the space-delimiter
