Handling different column delimiters

In regions where a comma is used as the decimal separator, the .csv files use ";" as the field delimiter. While dealing with such data files, use read.csv2() to load data into R.

Alternatively, you can use the read.csv("<file name>", sep=";", dec=",") command.

Use sep="t" for tab-delimited files.
