I still have problems with the reading of a matrix.

A-Paar B-Paar C-Paar D-Paar E-Paar

A 1 3 5 7 9

B 2 4 6 8 10

R-commands:

y=read.table(file="Z:/Software/R-Programme/matrixData6.txt")
y

Result:

A.Paar B.Paar C.Paar D.Paar E.Paar

A 1 3 5 7 9 B 2 4 6 8 10

If you look into the txt-file you can recognize that the column names are not the same. Why?

If I add in the txt-file the line "MyData:" infront of all followed by a newline. The R-command as above response an error. How can I read the modified input and get the following result:

MyData:

A.Paar B.Paar C.Paar D.Paar E.Paar

A 1 3 5 7 9 B 2 4 6 8 10

Another stupid question might be hows can I change the column and row names after I made "read.table"? I want to have the following result, for example:

MyData:

G H I J K M 1 3 5 7 9 N 2 4 6 8 10

I studied all manuals I could find and the help but could not understand the examples or interpret it right for my case.

Thanks for help,

Corinna
