An updated anytime package arrived at CRAN yesterday. This is release number nine, and the first with a little gap to the prior release on Christmas Eve as the features are stabilizing, as is the implementation.
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 releases addresses two small things related to the
utcdate() conversion (see below) and adds one nice new format, besides some internal changes detailed below:
R> library(anytime) R> anytime("Thu Sep 01 10:11:12 CDT 2016")  "2016-09-01 10:11:12 CDT" R> anytime("Thu Sep 01 10:11:12.123456 CDT 2016") # with frac. seconds  "2016-09-01 10:11:12.123456 CDT" R>
