Thanks to Martyn Plummer and Vele Samak for taking the time to answer my
problem. scan certainly will do the trick. However, having taken a look at the
code for read.table, it seems to me that I might be able to add in a "what"
argument and then just pass it down to the call to scan. But that won't be
today's project . . .
