Dear R-users,
I have output files having a variable number of tables in the following format:

I1 I2 Value
1  1  0.11
1  2  0.12
2  1  0.21

I1 I2 I3 Value
1 1 1 0.111
3 3 3 0.333

Would there be an easy way
of turning this into (a list of) data.frames with names Pietje, Jantje
and variables I1,I2,...Value?

(I1,I2 are string or categorical,
Value is double).

I used an sed script to extract the tables from the file into separte file,
but would rather be able to process

the output files directly.
