If your question is how, in general, to find information on R,
go the R home page by entering the single letter R into google and then
look at the links under Documentation in the left hand pane.

If your question is how to preprocess data with sed or awk try this:

mydata <- read.table(pipe("awk -f filter.awk input.txt"))
