file <- system.file("extdata","file.txt", package="methimpute")
arabidopsis_chromosomes$chromosome <- sub('chr', '', arabidopsis_chromosomes$chromosome) <- importBismark(file, chrom.lengths=arabidopsis_chromosomes)

I am trying to interpret my bismark results into methimpute but it gives me an error of :

line 1 did not have 7 elements
In addition: Warning messages:
1: In data.table::fread(file, skip = skip, sep = "\t", colClasses = classes) :
  Detected 7 column names but the data has 2 columns. Filling rows automatically. Set fill=TRUE explicitly to avoid this warning.
2: In utils::read.table(file, skip = skip, sep = "\t", colClasses = classes) :
  line 1 appears to contain embedded nulls

The problem is I don't know which type of BÄ°smark file I need to provide for this. Thank you for your time already.

The problem is linked to file reading in R. Probably your file is badly formatted.

You should read carefully the error message:

Detected 7 column names but the data has 2 columns

You have 7 names and 2 columns. Maybe bismark expects 7 columns?

If you post the first lines (including header) of your file, maybe someone could help.
