tm (version 0.6-2)

DirSource: Directory Source

Description

Create a directory source.

Usage

DirSource(directory = ".", encoding = "", pattern = NULL, recursive = FALSE, ignore.case = FALSE, mode = "text")

Arguments

directory
A character vector of full path names; the default corresponds to the working directory getwd().
encoding
a character string describing the current encoding. It is passed to iconv to convert the input to UTF-8.
pattern
an optional regular expression. Only file names which match the regular expression will be returned.
recursive
logical. Should the listing recurse into directories?
ignore.case
logical. Should pattern-matching be case-insensitive?
mode
a character string specifying if and how files should be read in. Available modes are:
""
No read. In this case getElem and pGetElem only deliver URIs.

"binary"
Files are read in binary raw mode (via readBin).

"text"
Files are read as text (via readLines).

Value

An object inheriting from DirSource, SimpleSource, and Source.

Details

A directory source acquires a list of files via dir and interprets each file as a document.
