Reading large CSV File with R

This tutorial explains how to read large CSV files with R. I have tested this code upto 6 GB File.

Method I : Using data.table library 
yyy = fread("C:\\Users\\Deepanshu\\Documents\\Testing.csv", header = TRUE)

Method II : Using bigmemory library
y <- read.big.matrix("C:\\Users\\Deepanshu\\Documents\\Testing.csv", type = "integer", header=TRUE)
#coerce a big.matrix to a matrix
yy= as.matrix(y)
