How-to Extract Text From Multiple Websites with R

I have been meaning to post this slideshow for awhile now. It gives a brief introduction to using R for scraping text from multiple websites. It includes some basic debugging, because R sometimes misses a website.

Just click the arrows to change the slides. Enjoy!

Sorry about that. You can also use the right and left arrows on your keyboard to go forwards and backwards through the slides.

Just let me know if you're having any other trouble.
