This function exports the passed in iso_files to the Python and R shared feather file format. The different kinds of data (raw data, file info, methods info, etc.) are exported to separate feather files that are saved with the provided filepath_prefix as prefix. All are only exported if the corresponding include_ parameter is set to TRUE and only for data types for which this type of data is available and was read (see iso_read_dual_inlet, iso_read_continuous_flow for details on read parameters). Note that in rare instances where vectorized data columns exist in the file information (e.g. measurement_info), they are concatenated with ', ' in feather output.

iso_export_to_feather(iso_files, filepath_prefix,
  include_raw_data = TRUE, include_file_info = TRUE,
  include_method_info = TRUE, include_vendor_data_table = TRUE,
  include_problems = TRUE, with_explicit_units = FALSE,
  quiet = default(quiet))

Arguments

iso_files

collection of iso_file objects

filepath_prefix

the path (folder and filename) prefix for the exported feather files. The correct suffix for different kinds of data and file extension is automatically added

include_raw_data

whether to include the raw data in the export (if available)

include_file_info

whether to include the file info in the export (if available)

include_method_info

whether to include methods infor in the export (if available)

include_vendor_data_table

whether to include the vendor data table in the export (if available)

include_problems

whether to include the problems table

with_explicit_units

whether to include units in the column headers instead of the column data types (see iso_double_with_units)

quiet

whether to display (quiet=FALSE) or silence (quiet = TRUE) information messages. Set parameter to overwrite global defaults for this function or set global defaults with calls to iso_turn_info_message_on and iso_turn_info_message_off

Value

returns the iso_files object invisibly for use in pipelines
