The function uses the very fast fread function form the data.table package. The column names of the resulting data table are made more r-friendly using clean_names from the janitor package. It replaces "." and " " with "_" and converts names to lower case which is also known as snake_case. In the end the data table is converted to a tibble.

read_protti(filename, ...)



a character value that specifies the path to the file.


additional arguments for the fread function.


A data frame (with class tibble) that contains the content of the specified file.


if (FALSE) { read_protti("folder\\filename") }
