Hello, I am new to this list and new to the R language. I am currently
evaluating the R language to see if it can be helpful. I currently use the
SAS language. In SAS, all my data sets are dealt with as files. This is
preferable as I tend to work with very large sets of data. I see that R can
read and write files of various formats, but can a data set be worked with
directly off the disk, not reading it into memory?

Thanks for your time.
