datetime: 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'
