Many value inputs to some parameters
There are some differences in how functions across rgbif behave
with respect to many values given to a single parameter (let's call it
The following functions originally only iterated over many
values passed to
foo as a vector (e.g.,
foo = c(1, 2)) with completely
separate HTTP requests. But now these functions also support passing in many
values to the same HTTP request (e.g.,
foo = "1;2"). This is a bit
awkward, but means that we don't break existing code. See
"Multiple values passed to a parameter" in
occ_data for more
The following functions, unlike those above, only support passing in many
values to the same HTTP request, which is done like
foo = c("1", "2").
Last, some parameters in the functions above don't accept more than one, and some functions don't have any parameters that accept more than one value (i.e., none of those listed above).
Each function that has at least some parameters that accept many values also has documentation on this issue.
