SAScii: Import ASCII files directly into R using only a SAS input script

Using any importation code designed for SAS users to read ASCII files into sas7bdat files, the SAScii package parses through the INPUT block of a (.sas) syntax file to design the parameters needed for a read.fwf function call. This allows the user to specify the location of the ASCII (often a .dat) file and the location of the .sas syntax file, and then load the data frame directly into R in just one step.
