Description Usage Arguments Value Note Author(s) References See Also Examples

Description

This function, and associated methods, define a name space prefix = URI combination for the given XML node. It can also optionally make this name space the default namespace for the node.

Usage

1
newXMLNamespace(node, namespace, prefix = names(namespace), set = FALSE)

Arguments

node

the XML node for which the name space is to be defined.

namespace

the namespace(s). This can be a simple character vector giving the URI, a named character vector giving the prefix = URI pairs, with the prefixes being the names of the character vector, or one or more (a list) of XMLNamespace objects, e.g. returned from a call to xmlNamespaceDefinitions

prefix

the prefixes to be associated with the URIs given in namespace.

set

a logical value indicating whether to set the namespace for this node to this newly created name space definition.

Value

An name space definition object whose class corresponds to the type of XML node given in node.

Note

Currently, this only applies to XMLInternalNodes. This will be rectified shortly and apply to RXMLNode and its non-abstract classes.
