anytime is a very focused package aiming to do just one thing really well: to convert anything in integer, numeric, character, factor, ordered, … format to either POSIXct or Date objects – and to do so without requiring a format string. See the anytime page, or the GitHub README.md for a few examples.
This release is mostly internal and switches to the excellent new tinytest package, a tweak the
iso8601() format helper which now uses
T between date and time (which is a breaking change with the usual addition of a option to get the old behaviour back) and a little more. The full list of changes follows.
Changes in anytime version 0.3.4 (2019-06-18)
Documentation was updated about a ‘Europe/London’ conversion issue (#84, inter alia).
The package is now compiled under the C++11 standard.
The package now uses
tinytestfor unit tests.
iso8601()function now places a ‘T’ between date and time; an option switches to prior format using a space.
The vignette is now pre-made and included as-is in a Sweave document reducing the number of suggested packages.
