Sorry to ask this but does anyone knows a good text that helps with the
basic programming side of R.  I understand the statistics behind most
of R but i have real difficulty with the data types and how R views

As a part of that could you help me with another problem.  I know how
to read data in from a file in terms of read.table but how do i single
a column out or even just download a single column from the file
instead of all of them.

Obviously the level of the above question shows you the level of the
book that is needed.

Any help will be much appreciated
