Dear R users:

My question is how to write output in a specific formate with irregular spacing?

Say that I have the following DF with three columns (A-C):

A B C
a10 100.0 212

The objective is to write an output file such that column A occupies 1-10 spaces aligned to the left, column B occupies 11-15 spaces aligned to the right, and finally column C takes 16-25 spaces aligned to left. In other words, this is what it should be looked like, where the first row is simply the indices for "space".

1234567890123456789012345
a10 100.0212

Thank you
