The (tag) name of an xml element.

Modify the (tag) name of an element

xml_name(x, ns = character())

xml_name(x, ns = character()) <- value

xml_set_name(x, value, ns = character())

Arguments

x

A document, node, or node set.

ns

Optionally, a named vector giving prefix-url pairs, as produced by xml_ns. If provided, all names will be explicitly qualified with the ns prefix, i.e. if the element bar is defined in namespace foo, it will be called foo:bar. (And similarly for atttributes). Default namespaces must be given an explicit name. The ns is ignored when using xml_name<- and xml_set_name.

value

a character vector with replacement name.

Value

A character vector.

Examples

x <- read_xml("<bar>123</bar>") xml_name(x)
#> [1] "bar"
y <- read_xml("<bar><baz>1</baz>abc<foo /></bar>") z <- xml_children(y) xml_name(xml_children(y))
#> [1] "baz" "foo"
