JYProjs/patentr: Access USPTO Bulk Data in Tidy Rectangular Format

Converts TXT and XML data curated by the United States Patent and Trademark Office (USPTO). Allows conversion of bulk data after downloading directly from the USPTO bulk data website, eliminating need for users to wrangle multiple data formats to get large patent databases in tidy, rectangular format. Data details can be found on the USPTO website <https://bulkdata.uspto.gov/>. Currently, all 3 formats: 1. TXT data (1976-2001); 2. XML format 1 data (2002-2004); and 3. XML format 2 data (2005-current) can be converted to rectangular, CSV format. Relevant literature that uses data from USPTO includes Wada (2020) <doi:10.1007/s11192-020-03674-4> and Plaza & Albert (2008) <doi:10.1007/s11192-007-1763-3>.
