Try this:

> x <- file("C:\\Users\\Jim\\Downloads\\PV2-ch2 - R_Help.ANA",

+           encoding = "UTF-16")

> y <- readLines(x)

> head(y)

[1] "1\t36,74\t0"      "2\t269,02\t-44"   "1\t326,62\t29"    "2\t354,52\t24"

[5] "8\t390,75\t1838"  "2\t395,11\t-1053"

What is the problem that you are trying to solve?
Tell me what you want to do, not how you want to do it.

I hope this link works. I tested it with a coworker, but that is no guarantee.
