Hello..
I am currently working on running random forest to make predictions. For that I have a bunch of .dbf files from shapefiiles. Earlier I was running random forest on those dbf files individually but now I have >1,000 such files and procesisng one by one is not an option.

I started by trying to read multiple dbf files as:
>setwd (..)
>a=list.files()
> for (x in a)(u=read.dbf(x))

but i get error
Error in get("read.dbf", "package:foreign")(dbf.name) :   unable to open DBF file

How can I read these files at once?

Thank you
