Description

Function for loading text files from a specified directory.

Usage

1
load.corpus(files = "all", corpus.dir = "", encoding = "UTF-8")

Arguments

files

a vector of file names. The default value all is an equivalent to list.files().

corpus.dir

a directory containing the text files to be loaded; if not specified, the current working directory will be used.

encoding

useful if you use Windows and non-ASCII alphabets: French, Polish, Hebrew, etc. In such a situation, it is quite convenient to convert your text files into Unicode and to set this option to encoding = "UTF-8". In Linux and Mac, you are always expected to use Unicode, thus you don't need to set anything.

Value

The function returns an object of the class stylo.corpus. It is a list containing as elements the texts loaded.
