How to read SGML (e.g., Reuters21578) by TextInput?

Hi,

I'd like to test a text classification algorithm on Reuters21578. However, I find that the TextInput in RM only allows directories, which could not directly deal with the format of SGML in Reuters21578.

Of course, I could write a new program to parse it by myself. But, is there any easier way by RM?

Thank you.

Sincerely yours,
gfyang

    Hi,
    there are two possibilities if you just want to extract the text from the data: You could just discard any tags, so that the pure text remains, or you could try to build an XPath querry, extracting what you need. The second solution will work with XML, but I don't know if your document contains any non XML elements.
