LexisNexisTools: Working with Files from 'LexisNexis'

My PhD supervisor once told me that everyone doing newspaper analysis starts by writing code to read in files from the 'LexisNexis' newspaper archive (retrieved e.g., from <http://www.nexis.com/> or any of the partner sites). However, while this is a nice exercise I do recommend, not everyone has the time. This package takes TXT files downloaded from the newspaper archive of 'LexisNexis', reads them into R and offers functions for further processing.
