I just took a cool R workshop and I'm chomping at the bit to play around
with it.  I'm fairly familiar with SAS and have some data that I used  with
Sas.  My question is:  How do I take a text file(I think my instructor
called it a rectangular file) and import it to R.  In sas you use an input
statement followed by Variable name and the column numbers for the location
of the data.  Does R have a similar procedure?  What would the syntax look
like?  Thank you for any help you can offer.
