Hi I am trying to read and restructure some ascii data. Each row of data consists of 543 ascii characters - the values of which are integers. I would like to the read the following data only in to a dataframe - (a) the first 8 digits - which represent one variable; and (b) the last 9 variables those characters begin at character position 508 in each row. Is this possible in R? If so how. Many thanks S.
