What is the difference between read.csv() and read_csv() in R?
From this article:
The read_csv function imports data into R as a tibble, while read.csv imports a regular old R data frame instead.
Tibbles are better than regular data frames because they:
- load faster
- don’t change input types
- allow you to have columns as lists
- allow non-standard variable names (i.e. your variables can start with a number and can contain spaces)
- never create row names
