TERR - Do not notice a big difference from R

Hi everyone,

I am running a code where I am standardizing some files (say one has an extra character, other a repeated column, etc). I have a lot of files and from different sizes (7kb to 7gb more or less). In the company we are using R and TERR as it is supposed to have a better performance but so far with some files it is exactly the same as R. We are basically using the data.table package using read.table() and fread() and the base package using the system() function (invoke a system command).

Has someone using more or less the same packages notice the same? 

Hope you can help me.
