Explain about data import in R language


R Commander is used to import data in R language. To start the R commander GUI, the user must type in the command Rcmdr into the console. There are 3 different ways in which data can be imported in R language-

• Users can select the data set in the dialog box or enter the name of the data set (if they know).

• Data can also be entered directly using the editor of R Commander via Data->New Data Set. However, this works well when the data set is not too large.

• Data can also be imported from a URL or from a plain text file (ASCII), from any other statistical package or from the clipboard.
