I am trying to query every single series in the fred database using r. I have checked out both the quantmod and fImport packages, and they work fine, though it seems that quantmod fits my use a bit better.
The only problem is that the query function in both packages takes as an input the name or names of the symbols you want, and doesn't have any funciton for "query all data" or even "query all data of a certain type". I was hoping at least that there would be some comprehensive list of all symbols in FRED, but I have googled and searched all over, and there isn't even a mention of this.
I realize this use case may sound a bit strange, and unfortunately I can't explain the reason for it for proffesional reasons.
Any help would be much appreciated!
