See the examples.

Arguments

description

The name how the stream is labelled

FUN

The function to use to read in the file. Defaults to read.table for datastream_table, read.csv for datastream_csv, read.csv2 for datastream_csv2, read.delim for datastream_delim, read.delim2 for datastream_delim2

columnnames

optional character vector of column to overwrite the column names of the data read in with in get_points

file

The file to read in. See e.g. read.table

...

parameters passed on to FUN. See e.g. read.table

mydata <- iris
mydata$Species[2:3] <- NA
## Example of a CSV file stream
myfile <- tempfile()
write.csv(iris, file = myfile, row.names=FALSE, na = "")
x <- datastream_csv(file = myfile, na.strings = "")
x
x$get_points(n=10)
x
x$get_points(n=10)
x
x$stop()

## Create your own specific file stream
write.table(iris, file = myfile, row.names=FALSE, na = "")
x <- datastream_file(description="My file defintion stream", FUN=read.table, 
 file = myfile, header=TRUE, na.strings="")
x$get_points(n=10)
x
x$stop()


## Clean up for CRAN
file.remove(myfile)
