This file copied to a gist used to read in with fread (a year or so ago when I wrote my script), but now I get...


Error in fread("grr.csv") :
Line 7 from sampling jump 1 starting <> has more than the expected 17 fields. Separator ',' occurs at position 241 which is character 9 of the last field: <<AAAAAAAA,AAAAAA>>. Consider setting 'comment.char=' if there is a trailing comment to be ignored.

In contrast, read.csv("grr.csv") still works, so that's what I will switch to for now. I guess Pasha's solution to my last issue along these lines might have worked for me here as well (#2157 allowing customization of the parameters behind the fread's jumping behavior), though I don't know it well enough to be sure.
