Read in a text file generated by Eprime

Description

Read in a text file generated by Eprime

Usage

1
read_eprime(filename, remove_clock = TRUE)

Arguments

filename

Either the full or relative path to an Eprime .txt file

remove_clock

Whether to exclude the Clock.Information XML entries. Enabled by default.

Details

The encoding on an Eprime txt file should be UCS-2 Little Endian, but sometimes this is not the case. We delegate the fussy encoding details to the stringi::str_read_lines function.

If the file is not an Eprime txt–that is, if it is missing the lines *** Header Start *** and *** Header End ***–a warning is raised and the lines of text are replaced by a dummy header.

Value

Each line of the file is stored and returned in a character vector.
