Object of class "call": the call of the applied function.

Object of class "data.frame": the data as downloaded formatted as a data.frame.

param:

Object of class "character": a character vector whose elements contain the values of selected parameters of the argument list.

title:

Object of class "character": a character string with the name of the download. This can be overwritten specifying a user defined input argument.

Note

The import and series functions like fredImport and fredSeries are typical examples which show how to implement download functions as simple timeSeries objectx or as more complicate fWEBDATA S4 objects. Inspect the R code and feel free to create your own download functions and objects.
