Show the structure of an html/xml document.

Show the structure of an html/xml document without displaying any of the values. This is useful if you want to get a high level view of the way a document is organised. Compared to xml_structure, html_structure prints the id and class attributes.

Usage
xml_structure(x, indent = 2, file = "")

html_structure(x, indent = 2, file = "")

Arguments
x

HTML/XML document (or part there of)

indent

Number of spaces to ident

file

A connection, or a character string naming the file to print to. If "" (the default), cat prints to the standard output connection, the console unless redirected by sink. If it is "|cmd", the output is piped to the command given by cmd, by opening a pipe connection.
