I have imported in a pdf document of 8 pages using pdf tools. I'm having trouble converting it from a character object into a dataframe where I can change the strings and search for patterns to convert into different columns
library(pdftools) text <- pdf_text("DownloadJobFinancialReportPDF.pdf")
I've then tried to split each line using \r\n which breaks at the end of each line but when I try to save this object which is classed as a character, as a dataframe R closes down. So I'm obviously doing something wrong.
text2 <- text %>% str_split(pattern = "\r\n") %>% unlist() glimpse(text2) View(text2) chr [1:283] "Job Financial Report df %>% as_data_frame(text2)
Any help gratefully appreciated,
Many thanks in advance
