Flatten a String

Description

Joins the elements of a character vector into one string.

Usage

stri_flatten(str, collapse = "", na_empty = FALSE,
  omit_empty = FALSE)

Arguments

str

a vector of strings to be coerced to character

collapse

a single string denoting the separator

na_empty

single logical value; should missing values in str be treated as empty strings?

omit_empty

single logical value; should missing values in str be omitted?

Details

The stri_flatten(str, collapse='XXX') call is equivalent to paste(str, collapse='XXX', sep="").

If you wish to use some more fancy (e.g., differing) separators between flattened strings, call stri_join(str, separators, collapse='').

If str is not empty, then a single string is returned. If collapse has length > 1, then only first string will be used.

Value

Returns a single string, i.e., a character vector of length 1.
