Hi Robert

I tried to import a data file which contains a) completely blank rows and b) rows with only 1 value instead of 42 (... and I would like to ignore this line as well).

How can I handle this problem? I realized that the read.table function has the option blank.lines.skip. However, how can I handle problem b)?!

I work with RStudio and already realized, that some details seem to be different than in the "standard" R software package. For example RStudio doesn't seem to recognize the edit() and fix() function. I copied the whole library from R to RStudio, so I don't think that I miss a necessary library. Do you know how I can handle this issue?

Thanks a lot for your help in advance!

Best regards,
