Dear Gordon,
Thank you very much for your answer. When I try the arguments nrows=2
or 2640 I get the error:
Read 15sz_szk10_Results1.gpr
Error in read.table(file = file, header = TRUE, col.names = allcnames,
:
formal argument "nrows" matched by multiple actual arguments
Csv files give the same error with nrows attribute but the do read
fine with the following instruction:
bialkoRaw<- read.maimages( targets$FileName, columns=list(G="Ch1\
Median", Gb="Ch1\ B\ Median", R="Ch2\ Median", Rb="Ch2\ B\ Median"),
sep=",")
And the object is almost fine:
An object of class "RGList"

The columns are not shifted to right, so I get the correct Median
values as desired.
However there is something wrong with the object because any following
instructions give this error:
Error in if is.int(totalPlate)) { : argument is of length zero
Preasumably it is because the printer layout is missing, so I do this:
bialkoRaw$printer<-getLayout("bialko.gal")
Error in getLayout("bialko.gal") :
gal needs to have columns Block, Row and Column
Strange enough the function readGAL works, but if I try to replace the
above instruction there is no printer parameters like ngrid.c, ngrid.r
etc. just and array.
Is there a way to check RGList object integrity?
Kind Regards,
Piotrek
