 xmlAttrs(node, ...)
 'xmlAttrs<-'(node, append = TRUE, suppressNamespaceWarning =
              getOption("suppressXMLNamespaceWarning", FALSE), value)

Arguments

node

The XMLNode object whose attributes are to be extracted.

append

a logical value indicating whether to add the attributes in value to the existing attributes within the XML node, or to replace the set of any existing attributes with this new set, i.e. remove the existing ones and then set the attributes with the contents of value.

...

additional arguments for the specific methods. For XML internal nodes, these are addNamespacePrefix and addNamespaceURLs. These are both logical values and indicate whether to prepend the name of the attribute with the namespace prefix and also whether to return the namespace prefix and URL as a vector in the namespaces attribute.

value

a named character vector giving the new attributes to be added to the node.

suppressNamespaceWarning

see addChildren

Value

A named character vector, where the names are the attribute names and the elements are the corresponding values. This corresponds to the (attr<i>, "value<i>") pairs in the XML tag <tag attr1="value1" attr2="value2"
