[Rd] time_t handling in R

Hello all,

I am converting some C code into a package for R and wondered what the  
proper way of handling time_t types from C in R was.  time_t is a typedef  
for long, but R seems to only deal in Integers or Reals, so what is the  
proper way of handling time in an R to C conversion ( or visa versa )?

Many thanks
