dsidavis/AbbyyXML: Read Optical Character Recognition Results from Abbyy XML Files

Functionality to read the XML documents resulting from optical character recognition by Abbyy on an image. For now, the important functionality is to get the locations of the important elements on the page, and to plot them. There are some convenience features to facilitate using the functions, e.g., methods and subscripting of documents. This serves a different purpose than the abbyyr package. That allows one to interact with the Abbyy cloud service and API, i.e. to upload documents to be OCR'ed and retrieve the results. That package doesn't process the results other than retrieving the contents. This is a good division of labor and focus in the package, i.e. not doing both. This is teh UNIX philosophy of doing one thing and doing it well.
