asciiSetupReader 2.0.0 Unreleased

Major Changes

  • Adds a single function (read_ascii_setup) that will read in data for both .dat+.sps and .dat+.sas pairs. This is just a helper function that calls spss_ascii_reader or sas_ascii_reader.
  • Adds function to create sps setup files.
  • Adds capacity for .sas reader to handle missing values.
  • Adds a function for users to parse the setup file (.sps or .sas) and get results. An accompanying vignette explains this function.
  • Adds a function to make your own .sps files (not .sas yet).

Minor Changes

  • Adds option to not coerce potentially numeric columns into numeric type. Useful in cases like dealing with Census FIPS codes that have leading zeros.
  • Miscellaneous bug fixes.
  • Fixes bug when missing values are an interval (e.g. -1 thru -8).
