This function takes sets of sources and merges them using the utterance identifiers (UIDs) to match them.
merge_sources( input, output, outputPrefix = "", outputSuffix = "_merged", primarySourcesRegex = ".*", primarySourcesIgnoreRegex = outputSuffix, primarySourcesPath = input, recursive = TRUE, primarySourcesRecursive = recursive, filenameRegex = ".*", postponeDeductiveTreeBuilding = TRUE, ignoreOddDelimiters = FALSE, preventOverwriting = rock::opts$get(preventOverwriting), encoding = rock::opts$get(encoding), silent = rock::opts$get(silent), inheritSilence = FALSE )
The directory containing the input sources.
The path to the directory where to store the merged sources.
This path will be created with a warning if it does not exist. An exception
is if "
same" is specified - in that case, every file will be written to the
same directory it was read from.
A pre- and/or suffix to add to the filename when writing the merged sources (especially useful when writing them to the same directory).
A regular expression that specifies how to recognize the primary sources (i.e. the files used as the basis, to which the codes from other sources are added).
A regular expression that specifies which files to ignore as primary files.
The path containing the primary sources.
Whether to read files from
TRUE) or not.
Only files matching this regular expression are read.
Whether to imediately try to build the deductive
tree(s) based on the information in this file (
FALSE) or whether to skip that. Skipping
this is useful if the full tree information is distributed over multiple files (in which case
you should probably call
parse_sources instead of
If an odd number of YAML delimiters is encountered, whether this
should result in an error (
FALSE) or just be silently ignored (
Whether to prevent overwriting existing files or not.
The encoding of the file to read (in
Whether to provide (
FALSE) or suppress (
TRUE) more detailed progress updates.
If not silent, whether to let functions called
merge_sources inherit that setting.
Invisibly, a list of the parsed, primary, and merged sources.
