Read in a text file generated by Eprime


read_eprime(filename, remove_clock = TRUE)



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


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


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.


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