I was reading the exchange about scraping PAA from Google here -
and trying the RScript. Unfortunately, neither Pidroz (original script) or S. Woodward versions work for me.
When trying the original code, i get a "htmlParse" : Error in htmlParse(., encoding = "UTF-8") :
could not find function "htmlParse"
and when trying the suggestion , I am getting a rcul error : Error in curl::curl_fetch_memory(url, handle = handle) :
URL using bad/illegal format or missing URL
I think this has to do with &ie=utf-8&oe=utf-8&client=firefox-b" [Original code]
Versus "&ie=utf-8&oe=utf- 8&client=firefox-b").
Would anyone be willing to help? Many thanks in advance
