Package: RCurl
Version: 1.98-0
Title: General network (HTTP/FTP/...) client interface for R
Author: Duncan Temple Lang
SystemRequirements: libcurl (version 7.14.0 or higher) http://curl.haxx.se.
On Linux systems, you will often have to explicitly install libcurl-devel
to have the header files and the libcurl library.
Maintainer: Duncan Temple Lang <duncan@r-project.org>
Description: The package allows one to compose general HTTP requests
and provides convenient functions to fetch URIs, get & post forms,
etc. and process the results returned by the Web server.
This provides a great deal of control over the HTTP/FTP/... connection and the form
of the request while providing a higher-level interface than is available just
using R socket connections. Additionally, the underlying implementation is robust
and extensive, supporting FTP/FTPS/TFTP (uploads and downloads),
SSL/HTTPS, telnet, dict, ldap, and also supports cookies, redirects, authentication, etc.
License: BSD_3_clause + file LICENSE
Depends: R (>= 2.7.0)
Imports: methods, bitops
Suggests: Rcompression, XML

Note: This will be used generally to communicate with HTTP servers and specifically
in the SOAP package, HTML forms and for accessing data on Web sites that require
more state information than simply URL access (e.g. cookies).
Note: To run R CMD check, one really needs network access. It is an HTTP client!
This can be problematic as a Web site may be down when you run
but the real tests are important.
