x <- enterchars(Str1 Str2 ...) is equivalent to x <- vector("Str1",
"Str2", ...)  allowing easy entry of CHARACTER data without the need to
type quotes (") or commas (,).  Str1, Str2, ... must consist of visible
characters which are not commas or '#' and be separated by spaces, tabs
or commas.

You cannot use enterchars() to enter CHARACTER elements which contain
commas or any kind of invisible characters such as spaces or tabs.
