Extraces the tag name of an XMLNode object.

Share:

Description

Each XMLNode object has an element or tag name introduced in the <name ...> entry in an XML document. This function returns that name.

We can also set that name using xmlName(node) <- "name" and the value can have an XML name space prefix, e.g. "r:name".

Usage

1
xmlName(node, full = FALSE)

Arguments

node

The XMLNode object whose tag name is being requested.

full

a logical value indicating whether to prepend the namespace prefix, if there is one, or return just the name of the XML element/node. TRUE means prepend the prefix.

Value

A character vector of length 1 which is the node$name entry.

  # We can set the node on an internal object also.
