EuropresseSource: Europresse Source

Description Usage Arguments Details Value Author(s) See Also Examples

Description

Construct a source for an input containing a set of articles exported from Europresse in the HTML format.

Usage

1
  EuropresseSource(x, encoding = "UTF-8")

Arguments

x

Either a character identifying the file or a connection.

encoding

A character giving the encoding of x. Files exported from Europresse often specify an incorrect encoding, in which case you will need to find out the correct one.

Details

This function imports the body of the articles, but also sets several meta-data variables on individual documents:

  • datetimestamp: The publication date.

  • heading: The title of the article.

  • origin: The newspaper the article comes from.

  • section: If available, the part of the newspaper containing the article.

  • pages: If available, the pages where the article appeared.

Please note that it commonly happens that the encoding specified in Europresse HTML files does not correspond to the one actually used in the text: in that case, you will need to find out the correct encoding and specify it manually.

Value

An object of class EuropresseSource which extends the class Source representing set of articles from Europresse.
