Description

tcplLoadChem queries the tcpl database and returns the chemical information for the given field and values.

Usage

1
2
tcplLoadChem(field = NULL, val = NULL, exact = TRUE,
  include.spid = TRUE)

Arguments

field

Character of length 1, the field to query on

val

Vector of values to subset on

exact

Logical, should chemical names be considered exact?

include.spid

Logical, should spid be included?

Details

The 'field' parameter is named differently from the 'fld' parameter seen in other functions because it only takes one input.

In the MySQL environment the user should be able to give partial chemical name strings, to find chemicals with similar names. For example, setting 'val' to "phenol" when 'field' is "chnm" and 'exact' is FALSE might pull up the chemicals "Bisphenol A" and "4-Butylphenol". More technically, setting 'exact' to FALSE passes the string in 'val' to an RLIKE statement within the MySQL query.

Value

A data.table with the chemical information for the given parameters

## Passing no parameters gives all of the registered chemicals with their
## sample IDs
tcplLoadChem()

## Or the user can exclude spid and get a unique list of chemicals
tcplLoadChem(include.spid = FALSE)

## In addition, the user can retrieve only the registered chemicals from the chemical table
tcplLoadChem(field = 'chem.only')

## Other examples:
tcplLoadChem(field = "chnm", val = "Bisphenol A")
tcplLoadChem(field = "chid", val = 20182)
