./www/R-curl, Modern and flexible web client for R

[ CVSweb ] [ Homepage ] [ RSS ] [ Required by ] [ Add to tracker ]


Branch: CURRENT, Version: 3.0, Package name: R-curl-3.0, Maintainer: pkgsrc-users

The curl() and curl_download() functions provide highly configurable
drop-in replacements for base url() and download.file() with better
performance, support for encryption (https, ftps), gzip compression,
authentication, and other 'libcurl' goodies. The core of the package
implements a framework for performing fully customized requests where
data can be processed either in memory, on disk, or streaming via the
callback or connection interfaces. Some knowledge of 'libcurl' is
recommended; for a more-user-friendly web client see the 'httr'
package which builds on this package with http specific tools and
logic.
