RblRequest <- RblRequestBuilder( header = c(FIRMNAME = RblUser(), PROGRAMNAME = 'gethistory', DATERANGE = '20050101|20151231'), fields = c('PX_LAST'), identifiers = c('SXXE Index') ) # Upload the request file req <- RblUpload(RblRequest) # Download the response file out <- RblDownload(req$out) # Import the data data <- RblParse(out) str(data) }
