Yes, it does work! I do receive an XML response.
Though, I should clarify: my purpose is rudimentary enough that I don't need to deposit anything, only download publicly viewable datasets (perhaps I'm remiss using the API client for this?) and possibly collect some metadata. I'm only looking to:
- automate the download of regularly uploaded files on a dataverse dataset
- if possible, collect metadata on the history of individual files' a) upload and b) update time (date is easily viewable for each, but time would be more useful)
I've also switched to using the R client for now, with some problems--example code breaks for me in some cases, though I work around it easily enough. I'm getting what I need for 1., though having trouble with 2. Again, I'm a very new undergraduate programmer, not studying CS, so I apologize if I have simply overlooked easy solutions to these simple tasks in the docs or forums--I'm not always 100% sure what to look for.
I greatly appreciate all of your help and prompt responses so far!
