[R] Read multiple text files and combine into single file?

Hi everyone!

I have 1000 text files that contain data in a standard format separated by semi colons. However, each file also has single header (first) and footer (final) lines. The text files are all named with a sample number, which do not follow a pattern. I need to delete the header and footer lines and combine all files into a single (or possibly several) large files. Does anyone know how this could be done automatically using R?

best regards,
