Hi Barry,

"You could do a similar thing in R by opening a text connection to 
your file and reading one line at a time, writing the modified or 
selected lines to a new file."

Great!  I'm aware of this existing, but don't know the commands for R.  I
have a variable [560,1] to use to pare down the incoming large data set (I'm
sure of millions of rows).  With other data sets they've been small enough
where I've been able to use the merge function after data has been read in. 
Obviously I'm having trouble reading in this large data set in in the first

Any additional help would be great!
