I want to read a table from a given web page.
If I do something like
> str="http://www...." # this is the web address
> aux1 <- url(str,open="rt")# open connection
> aux2 <- readLines(aux1) # read web page
aux2 contains the html file.
I want to extract the table from the html file.
Is there a function html2R, the opposite of R2html?
How should I do this?
