WebCorpus: WebCorpus constructor function.

Description Usage Arguments

View source: R/corpus.R

Description

WebCorpus adds further methods and meta data to Corpus and therefore constructs a derived class of Corpus. Most importantly, WebCorpus calls $PostFUN on the generated WebCorpus, which retrieves the main content for most implemented WebSources. Thus it enables an efficient retrieval of new feed items (corpus.update). All additional WebCorpus fields are added to tm$meta like $source, $readerControl and $postFUN.
