# Load example file with population data from United Nations Statistics Division # and create flat dataframe example <- system.file("worldpopulation.xml", package="flatxml") xml.dataframe <- fxml_importXMLFlat(example) # Check if XML element with ID 4 (xml.dataframe$elemid. == 4) has any siblings # (elements on the same hierarchy level) fxml_hasSiblings(xml.dataframe, 4)
#> [1] TRUE
