qdapRegex (version 0.7.5)

rm_non_ascii: Remove/Replace/Extract Non-ASCII

Description

Remove/replace/extract non-ASCII substring from a string. This is the template used by other qdapRegex rm_XXX functions.

Usage

rm_non_ascii(
  text.var,
  trim = !extract,
  clean = TRUE,
  pattern = "@rm_non_ascii",
  replacement = "",
  extract = FALSE,
  dictionary = getOption("regex.library"),
  ascii.out = TRUE,
  ...
)

ex_non_ascii( text.var, trim = !extract, clean = TRUE, pattern = "@rm_non_ascii", replacement = "", extract = TRUE, dictionary = getOption("regex.library"), ascii.out = TRUE, ... )

Arguments

text.var

The text variable.

trim

logical. If TRUE removes leading and trailing white spaces.

clean

trim logical. If TRUE extra white spaces and escaped character will be removed.

pattern

A character string containing a regular expression (or character string for fixed = TRUE) to be matched in the given character vector. Default, @rm_non_ascii uses the rm_non_ascii regex from the regular expression dictionary from the dictionary argument. If extract = FALSE gsub is not used as with other rm_XXX functions, rather iconv with the sub argument set is used to conduct the subbing.

replacement

Replacement for matched pattern.

extract

logical. If TRUE the all non-ASCII strings are extracted into a list of vectors.

dictionary

A dictionary of canned regular expressions to search within if pattern begins with "@rm_".

ascii.out

logical. If TRUE output is given in non-ASCII format, otherwise "byte" is used.

ignored.

Value

Returns a character string with "all non-ascii" removed.

Warning

iconv is used within rm_non_ascii. iconv's behavior across operating systems may not be consistent.
