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).

License

GPL (>= 2) just like R itself

Status

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

Author

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