I can't open the .deg file

Recommended Posts

Hi all, 

I am writing to you because I have a problem with the .deg files from Migration technology geolocators. When I ran this lines:

## Immersion temperature and tag data
aux <- read.table(glue::glue("RawData/{Species}/{tag}.deg"), skip = 20) %>%
  setNames(c("Date", "Time", "Tmin", "Tmax", "Tmean", "wetdry", "Cond")) %>%
  unite(col = "Datetime", c(Date, Time), sep = "", remove = TRUE) %>%
  mutate(Datetime = as.POSIXct(Datetime, format = "%d/%m/%Y %H:%M:%S", tz = "GMT")) %>%
  filter(wetdry >= 2)

I received this issue: 

Error in `[.data.frame`(out, setdiff(names(out), names(from_vars))) : undefined columns selected

Also, I tried this:

raw.deg<- readMTdeg(paste0(wd, "/RawData/", Species, "/", tag, ".deg"))

But didn't work either:

Error in read.table(file, header = FALSE, skip = skip, sep = "\t", col.names = c("Date", : more columns than column names

Does anyone have an idea how I can fix it?

Many thanks in advance!
