Resolved: Reading csv files.
What's the difference between read.csv and read_csv ?

thanks for reaching out!
read.csv function reads a file into a data frame object. The
read_csv function reads the file into a tibble object. The tibble objects have some advantages over regular data frames, such as the fact that they load faster and allow non-standard naming of columns.
Nevertheless, both are valid ways to read a csv in R, so you're welcome to use either of the two functions.
Thank you :-)
