Dear all,

I am a beginner in R and want to ask a simple question. I have a code file
in text format which I need to change to .r format only. For example now it
is RHtestsV4.r.txt which needs to be changed to just RHtestsV4.r. I tried

sub("^([^.]*).*", "\\1", 'RHtestsV4.r.txt')
[1] "RHtestsV4"

But this didn't seem to work as again when I try to call the function using
The error message is

Error in file(filename, "r", encoding = encoding) :
  cannot open the connection
In addition: Warning message:
In file(filename, "r", encoding = encoding) :
  cannot open file 'RHtestsV4.r': No such file or directory

I think it is due to the format of the file. Please help me to convert the
file to .r format.
