set_TextType

For any EML element of class TextType, this function can be used to generate the appropriate EML from a markdown-formatted file.

Usage
set_TextType(file = NULL, text = NULL)
Arguments
file

path to a file providing formatted input text, see details.

text

a plain text character string which will be used directly as the content of the node if no file is given

Details

If the `rmarkdown` package is installed, then the input file can be a Microsoft Word (.docx) file, a markdown file, or other file recognized by Pandoc (see https://pandoc.org), which will automate the conversion to a docbook. Otherwise, the input file should already be in docbook format (with .xml or .dbk extension). Note that pandoc comes pre-installed in RStudio and is required for the rmarkdown package.

Value

a TextType object that can be coerced into any element inheriting from TextType, see examples
