[R] Importing with read.table

Hi all. I have something similar to the following:

myinfo <- read.table( file = "myfile.txt", sep = "|", col.name = c( "data1",
"data2" ) )


However, since there are two pipe (|) characters, it reads it in and thinks
there should be three columns. This is not the case and I get a warning
about col.names is wrong length. Is there a way around this? Thanks.
