xcmsSource-class: Virtual class for raw data sources

Description Objects from the Class Author(s) See Also


This virtual class provides an implementation-independent way to load mass spectrometer data from various sources for use in an xcmsRaw object. Subclasses can be defined to enable data to be loaded from user-specified sources. The virtual class xcmsFileSource is included out of the box which contains a file name as a character string.

When implementing child classes of xcmsSource, a corresponding loadRaw-methods method must be provided which accepts the xcmsSource child class and returns a list in the format described in loadRaw-methods.
