[R] Building a what list for scan to use

Using read.table now on large files. Scan should be faster reading and 
parsing the files if a 'what' list is provided.

How would I generate a what list that repeats the the last 4 elements n 
(n=14 or 10 or 8) times?


All are numeric, either decimal or hexadecimal.

Thanks in advance,
Alex van der Spek
