Need a snippet of code written for insertion into an existing file. The software package is R.

Aside from knowledge of R bidders must have an understanding of both the 'zoo' and 'xml' packages for use with R.

Starting with two simple XML files, I want to read time series data from both into data frames in R. The first column in each file contains dates and times, which will need to be converted into date objects. The ninth column contains the values of interest for further manipulation.

It is this data (column 9) that needs to be subjected to the zoo function to create zoo objects. I have the remainder of the code to continue the manipulation from this point forward. I will also provide the raw XML files for testing and file into which the code this project delivers will be inserted. An example XML file has been attached for reference.

The code delivered under this project needs to be able to plug straight in to the file and work. Payment will only be made if this is the case.
