I worked a bit more on the Ascii Import feature.
Now, it automagically can set up the parameters for a given
kind of ColumnDivider. In other words, if you tell the engine
that the file is a fixed-width file, it'll figure out the rest
Similarly, you can tell the engine that it's a delimited file,
and it's figure out which delimiter it needs to use.
There are still a number of things missing before the engine
is fully automatic. I'll have a look at that next week, unless
the unlikely event that somebody else does it.
Btw. Jon, by setting the heading_lines() to 4, and using fixed-width
delimiter, I can handle the annoy.2 file pretty good. Similarly,
with a delimiter-engine and heading_lines() to 2, the annoy.1 file
is basically perfect.
Of course, the goal is to make all of it automatic, so that you
don't need to fiddle with heading_lines and engine-type by yourself.
I hope to reach that goal next week.
