Usage
datasource(file, skip = 0, comment = "")
Arguments
file
Either a path to a file, a connection, or literal data (either a single string or a raw vector). Files ending in .gz, .bz2, .xz, or .zip will be automatically uncompressed. Files starting with http://, https://, ftp://, or ftps:// will be automatically downloaded. Remote gz files can also be automatically downloaded & decompressed. Literal data is most useful for examples and tests. It must contain at least one new line to be recognised as data (instead of a path).
skip
Number of lines to skip before reading data.
