I have received a dataset in text file with the following format
col1=datac1r1,col2=datac2r1,col3=datac3r1 col1=datac1r2,col2=datac2r2,col3=datac3r2 col1=datac1r3,col2=datac2r3,col3=datac3r3 col1=datac1r4,col2=datac2r4,col3=datac3r4
Each row is a unique entry, with columns separated by comma, just that the column name is repeated in each element.
I need to parse this in R and analyze it. I have worked with csv files extensively, but I have never seen this format before.
Is it a std. format I can import it in? Or do I need to write a script to convert it into a csv format?
