Error in write.table because data.frame contains a list

Error in .External2(C_writetable, x, file, nrow(x), p, rnames, sep, eol, :
unimplemented type 'list' in 'EncodeElement'

I got this error when trying to write a table write.table on an object. The object was a data.frame but one of the elements was a list (it is unclear why it was a list, just R magic). The simplest workaround is to convert the data.frame to a matrix as.matrix and save that object with write.table

Download the tab ball from Cran and extract the gz to get the tar. Then extract the tar.

 

I use 7zip since it is free!

 

Look in the R folder, the code you are searching for will be there.
