[S] importing fascii files

I am trying to import a fascii file and read in only the first 5 columns
out of a 35 column file. Setting end column to 5 does not seem to stoo
stop the program from reading beyond that column. The data frame indicates
that the import procedure kept reading beyond column 5 and stuffed the
values in cols 1-5 of each succeeding row until the whole file was read
Any suggestions and references would be appreciated.
