I am using RCurl, version 0.9-4, under windows. I can not find the function
getURLContent(). Is it being renamed ? or is it in a different version?
Also, in the reference manual on CRAN R under package RCurl, I found a
function getBinaryURL() documented but can not be found in the package as
> I would use something like
> content = getURLContent("ftp://...../foo.zip")
> attributes(content) = NULL
> writeBin(content, "/tmp/foo.zip")
> and that should be sufficient.
> (You have to strip the attributes or writeBin() complains.)
