Now "fread" from data.table can read "gz" and "bz2" files directly
Dear R Programmers,
Those who all use data.table for your data readings, good news is that now, fread supports direct reading of zip formats like”gz” and “bz2”.
To all my followers and readers, as mentioned earlier several times, good way for saving both space and reading fast is achievable by first saving
raw files into “gz” format and their after reading the same into R and convert them into to fst format for all further reads/loading.
Happy R Programming!
