The first update in a little while brings us release 0.0.4 of RApiDatetime which got onto CRAN this morning via the lovely automated sequence of submission, pretest-recheck and pretest-publish.
RApiDatetime provides seven entry points for C-level functions of the R API for
Datetime calculations. The functions
asPOSIXct convert between long and compact datetime representation,
Rstrptime convert to and from character strings, and
D2POSIXlt convert between
POSIXlt datetime. This releases brings
asDatePOSIXct as a seventh courtesy of Josh Ulrich. All these functions are all fairly useful, but not one of them was previously exported by R for C-level use by other packages. Which is silly as this is generally extremely carefully written and tested code.
I also updated the exported base R code to what is in R 3.5.1 right now, added a few
#nocov declarations (not all which are reflected at the codecov page yet, and added a dependency badge at the GitHub repo.
