There are many more things you can do with strings, and we will discuss those in Chapter 15. We can use the scan() function to read in data instead of typing the data in by using the c() function. For example, say we want to create a vector with 10 numbers. People are usually better at entering data in columns than rows. Here’s how to use scan() to build a vector: > newVector <- scan () 1: 11 2: 23 3: 44 4: 15 5: 67 27 Chapter 3 ■ Input and Output 6: 15 7: 12 8: 8 9: 9 10: Read 9 items > newVector [1] 11 23 44 15 67 15 12 8 9 You simply type the numbers in one at a time and hit < Enter> when you are finished.

When you fix the labels, or make any other changes to the data frame, just close the R Data Editor to save the changes (see Figure 3-2). csv") > fix(roster) 29 Chapter 3 ■ Input and Output Figure 3-2. 3 Other Ways to Get Data Into R We can read data into R from different kinds of files, including comma-separated value (CSV) files, text files, R data files, and others. The scan() function and the readline() function can be used as well. You can also request user input via the console. Let’s examine these various approaches.

90 > summary(mtcars $ wt) Min. 1st Qu. Median Mean 3rd Qu. Max. 424 To refer to a given column in a data fame, you can use either indexing or the $ operator with the data frame name followed by the variable name. Because data frames have both rows and columns, you must use indexes for both the row and the column. To refer to an entire row or an entire column, you can use a comma, as you can with a matrix. To illustrate, the rear axle ratio variable is the fifth column in the data frame. We can refer to this column in two ways.
