How can I parse an XML file in one of my folders in R programming?

In the previous post, the file was placed on the local internet server and a URL reference was given. It does not have to be that way. The file can be in the folders/files and you just need to change the code a little bit as shown. I am using the same file I used in the previous post.

These are the three lines needed to parse the XML file in the following directory:
> library(XML)
> fileName="C:\\Users\\Jayaram\\Desktop\\SQLServer2016D\\R Server\\Mystudents.xml"
> xmlFile <- filename="" font="" readlines="" xmltreeparse="">

And this produces the same result as in the previous post.

[1] ""

[1] "1.0"

Follow the warnings in the previous post. Also make sure that the file name is typed in as shown in the post (note the double slashes).
