I have a very large file (800 MB) to be read in R from a txt files and it takes several minutes to do so. I need it to be much quicker.
Is there any functions, packages, or tricks to read in data much quicker than what I am doing?
I have included my code and the dataset.
I use a HP laptop with intel i7 and windows8.
Thank you for you help.
