RApiDatetime 0.0.8 on CRAN: Maintenance

A new release of our RApiDatetime package is now on CRAN.

RApiDatetime provides a number of 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. Lastly, asDatePOSIXct converts to a date type. All these functions are rather useful, but were not previously exported by R for C-level use by other packages. Which this package aims to change.

This release accomodates a CRAN request (as one does) to change (one single) instance of sprintf() to snprintf(). No more, no less.

Changes in RApiDatetime version 0.0.8 (2023-01-14)

  • Update one use of sprint to snprintf

  • Minor edits to DESCRIPTION

Courtesy of my CRANberries, there is are comparisons to the previous release. More information is on the rapidatetime page.
