Translation of text to XML

Share:

Description

odfTranslate converts some XML modified characters (such as &gt) to R code (>). This function also tries to mistake proof the code by anticipating characters that might be in UTF-8 encoding to R compliant characters (e.g. OpenOffice may convert some characters. For example, " will become a UTF-8 character, which R will choke on).

Usage

1
odfTranslate(x, toR = TRUE)

Arguments

x

a character vector

toR

a logical. If TRUE, the text is translated from XML to R. The opposite is done if FALSE.

Value

a character vector
