Parse a DarwinRecordSet and SimpleDarwinRecordSet files

Parse a DarwinRecordSet and SimpleDarwinRecordSet files

Usage
simple_read(file)
Arguments
file

(character) A path to a single simple Darwin Core file in XML format. Required.

Details

Make sure when reading a DarwinRecordSet to access the chunks by position rather than name since duplicate names are allowed in chunks.

Value

a S3 class dwc_recordset when a DarwinRecordSet is given, or a dwc_simplerecordset when a SimpleDarwinRecordSet is given. In each case the object is really just a list, with lightweight S3 class attached for easy downstream usage. Prints summary to screen by default
