Hi,
You may try:
op <- options(digits=12)
r1 <- 4; c1 <- 4
A <- matrix(scan("file1.txt",n=r1*c1),r1,c1,byrow=TRUE)
options(op) #reset

Dear all,
I’m using 'scan' function to import data into a matrix from a .txt
file. The data are numbers with 12 significant digits (e.g.
471773.309872).
When I give the command:
A <- matrix(scan(file_name, n=r*c), r, c, byrow=TRUE)
numbers are stored in the matrix with only 7 significant digits
(e.g. 471773.3). How can I increase the number of significant digits?
Thank you for your reply.
Eleonora
