RcppBDT 0.2.1

August 8, 2012

(This article was first published on Thinking inside the box , and kindly contributed to R-bloggers)

A new bug-fix release of the RcppBDT package appeared on
CRAN earlier today. David Reiner
noticed that the functions getEndOfMonth and getEndOfBizWeek
were not working right. These are convenience wrappers around the real
functionality provided as a member function to the reference class built by
Rcpp modules—which works off a reference instance of the class, and these
two convenience functions were not updating the date. This is now fixed.

The complete NEWS entry is below:

Changes in version 0.2.1 (2012-08-08)

  • Bug for getEndOfBizWeek() and getEndOfMonth() who were lacking
    a call to fromDate(date) to actually pass the date for which the
    functions are computing the end of business week or month.

Courtesy of
CRANberries, there
is also a diffstat report
for 0.2.1 relative to 0.2.0.
As always, feedback is welcome and the
rcpp-devel mailing list
off the R-Forge page for Rcpp is
the best place to start a discussion.
