Text to Table

Description

Usage

1
FixToTab(txt, sep = " ", delim = "\t", trim = TRUE, header = TRUE)

Arguments

txt

the text to be partitioned. Works best, if txt is a matrix.

sep

the separator to use. Will frequently be " ".

delim

the new delimiter to insert. (default tab)

trim

logical. Should the separated text be trimmed from whitespace? Defaults to TRUE.

header

logical. Should the first line be interpreted as header?

Details

Only a complete appearance of the separator character in the same position over all rows will be accepted as column delimiter.

Value

a matrix of the separated text.
