FindReplace {BrailleR} R Documentation

## Find/Replace text in a file

### Description

Simple wrapper functions to make it easier to replace the text in a file, possibly due to spelling errors, but perhaps to replace default text in a template file.

### Usage

FindReplace(file, find, replace)

Rnw2Rmd(file)

UseTemplate(file, find=NULL, replace=NULL)


### Arguments

 file The external (text) file or template to be updated. find The text to remove. replace The text to insert.

### Details

The FindReplace function is purely intended for use on an external file whereas UseTemplate is intended to take a template file from within the BrailleR package and return the updated text to the calling environment.

Rnw2Rmd tries to replace Standard LaTeX commands and Sweave chunk headers with R markdown ones. It is NOT comprehensive, but it does get a long way towards a useful markdown file.

Obviously the specified file must exist for these functions to work.

### Value

FindReplace will replace the existing file with the updated version while UseTemplate will return a character string which will usually be pushed out to an R script or R markdown file.
