Hi Payal,

These are the ways to read text files into R.

1. Comma delimited text file - use read_csv("path/filename.csv")

read_csv("file.csv")

2. Semicolon delimited text file - use read_csv2("path/filename.csv")

read_csv2("file.csv")

3. Text files with fixed space/tab - use read_fwf("path/filename.csv")

read_fwf("file.csv")

4. Partial text file (lines)-  use read_lines("path/filename.csv")

read_lines("file.csv",skip,max,..)

5. Full text file - use read_file("path/filename.csv")

read_file("file.csv")

6. Any delimited file -  use read_delim("path/filename.csv")

read_delim("file.csv",delim = "|")

hope it helps!
