Use the r function scan() to read the entire file into a vector and then
extract the observations for each series (possible using loops?)

> Hi
> I have four variables and the time series data for each variable consists
> of values for past 10 years on monthly basis. I want to get descriptive
> stats for these four variables separately (mean, median, sd, min, max).
> The data I import to R consists of different columns, where each column
> gives values for one month of a particular year (e.g. March 31st, 2010).
> Right now R gives descriptive results for each column, whereas I need it
> collectively for all the years ( one mean, one sd, one min, one max and one
> median) for each variable.
> Kindly guide me in this regard.
> Thanks.
