download_xml(url, file = basename(url), quiet = TRUE, mode = "wb",
  handle = curl::new_handle())

download_html(url, file = basename(url), quiet = TRUE, mode = "wb",
  handle = curl::new_handle())

Arguments

url

A character string naming the URL of a resource to be downloaded.

file

A character string with the name where the downloaded file is saved.

quiet

If TRUE, suppress status messages (if any), and the progress bar.

mode

A character string specifying the mode with which to write the file. Useful values are "w", "wb" (binary), "a" (append) and "ab".

handle

a curl handle object

Details

The main difference between curl_download and curl_fetch_disk is that curl_download checks the http status code before starting the download, and raises an error when status is non-successful. The behavior of curl_fetch_disk on the other hand is to proceed as normal and write the error page to disk in case of a non success response.

Value

Path of downloaded file (invisibly).
