Hi,

If I understand:

x <- "SeriesA, 5, 5, 5, 5
SeriesB, 8, 5, 8, 8, 7, 10, 2, 7, 3
SeriesC, 5, 5, 8, 4, 7, 7, 4, 5
SeriesD, 5, 9, 5, 4, 2, 3, 10, 1

SeriesE, 7, 10, 9, 5, 8, 6, 10, 9, 5, 10, 4, 3, 2, 10, 8, 8, 10, 10, 10 SeriesF, 1, 2, 1, 5, 1, 7, 5, 7, 7, 3"

dat <- t(read.table(textConnection(x), row.names = 1, fill = T, sep = ","))
