This package provides R with access to Boost Date_Time functionality by using Rcpp modules. Functionality from Boost Date_Time for dates, durations (both for days and datetimes), timezones, and posix time ("ptime") is provided. The posix time implementation can support high-resolution of up to nano-second precision by using 96 bits (instead of R's 64) to present a ptime object.
This package provides R with access to Boost Date_Time functionality by using Rcpp modules.
Each of these has an individual demo file.
The package now takes advantage of R 3.1.0 and uses the C++11 standard to get
long long support which is needed for high-resolution timing support on all
All calculations work as implemented, but the package still has a "proof of concept" flavour as they are not vectorised at the R level. All the relevant operators would have to be defined. That is mostly tedious which I have not gotten around to yet. Get in touch if you are interested.
