A Method of Grouping and Summarizing Data of Big Text Files in R Language

We cannot load them wholly to the memory when we need to compute them. The only solutions could be batch importing and computing as well as result merging. We’ll use an example in the following to illustrate the way of R language to group and summarize data from big text files.
