Hello, I am having a problem with the command window being extremely slow when I am trying to read in .dat files. They are quite large (somthing like (176000, 26000)), but it is taking upwards of 30 min to read in. And once it is read in, it is very laggy for just displaying the size(), or when I simply input 2 + 2. It will take about 2 full seconds to generate the answer for 2 + 2.
I have checked other similar questions and one of the most common problems is that people have a program called 'magnet' running, which I do not.
Any tips for what I can do to speed this up? Or why it is so slow? Even just clicking between the command line and the script box takes 5 seconds to register. I am using readtable() to read in the .dat files.
