ok so the gct file looks like this:

#1.2  (version number)
7283 19   (matrix size)
Name Description Values
....      .......          ......

How can I tell R to disregard the first two lines and start reading
the 3rd line in this gct file. I would just delete them, but I do not
know how to open a gct. file

thank you
