AbbreviationPipe {bdpar}R Documentation

Class to find and/or replace the abbreviations on the data field of an Instance

Description

AbbreviationPipe class is responsible for detecting the existing abbreviations in the data field of each Instance. Identified abbreviations are stored inside the abbreviation field of Instance class. Moreover if needed, is able to perform inline abbreviations replacement.

Details

AbbreviationPipe class requires the resource files (in json format) containing the correspondence between abbreviations and meaning. To this end, the language of the text indicated in the propertyLanguageName should be contained in the resource file name (ie. abbrev.xxx.json where xxx is the value defined in the propertyLanguageName ). The location of the resources should be defined in the "resources.abbreviations.path" field of bdpar.Options variable.

Note

AbbreviationPipe will automatically invalidate the Instance whenever the obtained data is empty.
