as.sento_corpus: Convert a quanteda or tm corpus object into a sento_corpus...

Description Usage Arguments Value Author(s) See Also Examples

Description

Converts most common quanteda and tm corpus objects into a sento_corpus object. Appropriate available metadata is integrated as features; for a quanteda corpus, this can come from docvars(x), for a tm corpus, only meta(x, type = "indexed") metadata is considered.

Usage

1
as.sento_corpus(x, dates = NULL, do.clean = FALSE)

Arguments

x

a quanteda corpus object, a tm SimpleCorpus or a tm VCorpus object. For tm corpora, every corpus element should consist of a single "content" character vector as the document unit.

dates

an optional sequence of dates as "yyyy-mm-dd", of the same length as the number of documents in the input corpus, to define the "date" column. If dates = NULL, the "date" metadata element in the input corpus, if available, will be used but should be in the same "yyyy-mm-dd" format.

do.clean

see sento_corpus.

Value

A sento_corpus object, as returned by the sento_corpus function.
