RApiDatetime

This package offers C-level datetime code from R for C-level use by other packages.

Why?

If you are writing C (or C++) code in an R package which needs to parse, format or transform date(time) objects, and want to do this at the compiled level, i.e. faster than calling back to the corresponding R level function could do it.

Who?

Dirk Eddelbuettel put the package together, but the underlying code is by the R Core team (and in parts the C library authors).

Where

The package is on CRAN and its source code is at GitHub.

Status

The package, while young, can be considered stable as the actual code is fairly mature and stable.

License

GPL (>= 2) just like R itself

Author

Dirk Eddelbuettel for this package; and R Core for the parts taken from R.
