readSDMX

readSDMX is the main function to use to read SDMX data

Usage
readSDMX(file, isURL, isRData,
                provider, providerId, providerKey,
                agencyId, resource, resourceId, version,
                flowRef, key, key.mode, start, end, dsd, validate, verbose)
Arguments
file

path to SDMX-ML document that needs to be parsed

isURL

a value of class "logical" either the path is an url, and data has to be downloaded from a SDMXweb-repository. Default value is TRUE. Ignored in case readSDMX is used with helpers (based on the embedded list of SDMXServiceProvider)

isRData

a value of class "logical" either the path is local RData file handling an object of class "SDMX", previously saved with saveSDMX. Default value is FALSE.

provider

an object of class "SDMXServiceProvider". If specified, file and isURL arguments will be ignored.

providerId

an object of class "character" representing a provider id. It has to be match a default provider as listed ingetSDMXServiceProviders()

providerKey

an object of class "character" giving a key to authenticate for the given provider endpoint. Some providers may require an authentication or subscription key to perform SDMX requests.

agencyId

an object of class "character representing an agency id, for which data should be requested (from a particular service provider)

resource

an object of class "character" giving the SDMX service request resource to query e.g. "data". Recognized if a valid provider or provide id has been specified as argument.

resourceId

an object of class "character" giving a SDMX service resource Id, e.g. the id of a data structure

version

an object of class "character" giving a SDMX resource version, e.g. the version of a dataflow.

flowRef

an object of class "character" giving the SDMX flow ref id. Recognized if valid provider or provide id has been specified as argument.

key

an object of class "character" or "list" giving the SDMX data key/filter to apply. Recognized if a valid provider or provide id has been specified as argument. If key.mode is equal to "R" (default value), filter has to be an object of class "list" representing the filters to apply to the dataset, otherwise the filter will be a string.

key.mode

an object of class "character" indicating if the key has to be provided as an R object, ie a object of class "list" representing the filter(s) to apply. Default value is "R". Alternative value is "SDMX"

start

an object of class "integer" or "character" giving the SDMX start time to apply. Recognized if a valid provider or provide id has been specified as argument.

end

an object of class "integer" or "character" giving the SDMX end time to apply. Recognized if a valid provider or provide id has been specified as argument.

dsd

an Object of class "logical" if an attempt to inherit the DSD should be performed. Active only if "readSDMX" is used as helper method (ie if data is fetched using an embedded service provider. Default is FALSE

validate

an object of class "logical" indicating if a validation check has to be performed on the SDMX-ML document to check its SDMX compliance when reading it. Default is FALSE.

verbose

an Object of class "logical" that indicates if rsdmx messages should appear to user. Default is TRUE.

Value

an object of class "SDMX"
