get.witrox.data(data.name, lines.skip, delimit = "tab", 
choose.names = F, chosen.names = NULL, 
format)

Arguments

data.name

Full data file name as character string.

lines.skip

The lines in the header to be skipped. If choose.names = FALSE, then skip all lines up to the column names. If choose.names =TRUE, skip all lines including column names.

delimit

Choose the delimiter. Defaults to tab delimited. Can take values of "tab", "space", or "comma". If importing from an excel file, save the file as a .csv file, then use the delimiter argument "comma"

choose.names

logical: if FALSE, then names are automatically derived from the names of the text file. Sometimes, this can be a problem if there are tabs or commas included in odd places in the column name line of the text file. If TRUE, user must specify a vector of column names–see lines.skip and chosen.names.

chosen.names

If choose.names = TRUE, chosen.names must be a vector of character strings for use as column.names.

format

This is the format that the date-time column is formatted in by auto resp–This must be the FIRST COLUMN. The default format is "%d/%m/%Y %I:%M:%S %p". Another common format is "%d/%m/%Y/%I:%M:%S %p". See strptime for more directions on formatting the date and time.

Value

Returns an object of class data.frame, with std.time as the last column, which is in the default standard POSIXct date-time format.
