This package provides a single function called read.csv.columns. Like other functions, this allows you to read data from a CSV file, but here you need to specify in advance what type each column is.


The signature of the function is

read.csv.columns(, column.types="", max.line.length=16384, has.header=TRUE, num.threads=1)

where the meaning of the arguments is as follows:

The function returns a list where each entry corresponds to a column in the CSV file. The columns that were marked as 'ignored', are not present in this list.
