This function downloads standard input-output table files. Currently only Eurostat files are supported. You are not likely to use this function, because iotable_get will call this function if necessary and properly filter out an input-output table.

## Usage

iotables_download(
source = "naio_10_cp1700",
data_directory = NULL,
)

## Arguments

source

See the available list of sources above in the Description.

data_directory

Defaults to NULL when the files will be temporarily stored in the path retrieved by tempdir. If it is a different valid directory, it will try to save the pre-processed data file here with labelling.

Defaults to FALSE which will use the existing downloaded file in the data_directory or the temporary directory, if it exists. TRUE will try to download the file from the Eurostat warehouse.

## Value

A nested data frame. Each input-output table is in a separate row of the nested output, where all the metadata are in columns, and the actual, tidy, ordered input-output table is in the data data column. The data is saved into the actual tempdir(), too.

## Details

The data is downloaded in the tempdir()under the name the statistical product as an rds file. (For example: naio_10_cp1750.rds) The temporary directory is emptied at every normal R session exit.

To save the file for further use (which is necessary in analytical work because download times are long) set the download_directory [see parameters]. The function will make a copy of the rds file in this directory.
