View source: R/search_count_bound.R

Description

These functions determine the number of text boundaries (like character, word, line, or sentence boundaries) in a string.

Arguments

str

character vector or an object coercible to

...

additional settings for opts_brkiter

opts_brkiter

a named list with ICU BreakIterator's settings, see stri_opts_brkiter; NULL for the default break iterator, i.e., line_break

locale

NULL or '' for text boundary analysis following the conventions of the default locale, or a single string with locale identifier, see stringi-locale

Details

Vectorized over str.

For more information on text boundary analysis performed by ICU's BreakIterator, see stringi-search-boundaries.

In case of stri_count_words, just like in stri_extract_all_words and stri_locate_all_words, ICU's word BreakIterator iterator is used to locate the word boundaries, and all non-word characters (UBRK_WORD_NONE rule status) are ignored. This function is equivalent to a call to stri_count_boundaries(str, type='word', skip_word_none=TRUE, locale=locale).

Note that a BreakIterator of type character may be used to count the number of Unicode characters in a string. The stri_length function, which aims to count the number of Unicode code points, might report different results.

Moreover, a BreakIterator of type sentence may be used to count the number of sentences in a text piece.

Value

Both functions return an integer vector.
