Nominal Dates, Times, and Durations

Provides methods for working with nominal dates, times, and durations. Base R has sophisticated facilities for handling time, but these can give unexpected results if, for example, timezone is not handled properly. This package provides a more casual approach to support cases which do not require rigorous treatment. It systematically deconstructs the concepts origin and timezone, and de-emphasizes the display of seconds. It also converts among nominal durations such as seconds, hours, days, and weeks. See '?datetime' and '?duration' for examples. Adapted from 'metrumrg' < http://r-forge.r-project.org/R/?group_id=1215>.
