RApiDatetime 0.0.3

A brown bag bug fix release 0.0.3 of RApiDatetime is now on CRAN.

RApiDatetime provides six entry points for C-level functions of the R API for Date and Datetime calculations. The functions asPOSIXlt and asPOSIXct convert between long and compact datetime representation, formatPOSIXlt and Rstrptime convert to and from character strings, and POSIXlt2D and D2POSIXlt convert between Date and POSIXlt datetime. These six functions are all fairly essential and useful, but not one of them was previously exported by R.

I left two undefined variables in calls in the exported header file; this only become an issue once I actually tried accessing the API from another package as I am now doing in anytime.

Changes in RApiDatetime version 0.0.3 (2017-04-02)

  • Correct two simple copy-and-paste errors in RApiDatetime.h

  • Also enable registration in useDynLib, and explicitly export known and documented R access functions provided for testing

Courtesy of CRANberries, there is a comparison to the previous release. More information is on the rapidatetime page.
