fetch_hook_read: Hook to fetch a resource from a file.

Description Usage Arguments Details Examples

View source: R/driver_external.R

Description

Hook to fetch a resource from a file, for use with driver_external. We take two functions as arguments: the first converts a key/namespace pair into a filename, and the second reads from that filename. Because many R functions support reading from URLs fetch_hook_read can be used to read from remote resources.

Usage

1
fetch_hook_read(fpath, fread)

Arguments

fpath

Function to convert key, namespace into a file path

fread

Function for converting filename into an R pobject
