How do we import a plain text file as a single character string in R?

The Method I tried:

scan("temp.txt",what = "character",sep=NULL)

this method creates char list, is there any other way ?

First way:

rd<-readChar("temp.txt",file.info("temp.txt")$size)

Another way:

install.packages("readr")
library(readr)
mystring <- read_file("temp.txt")
