Hi fellow R developers/users,
I've recently revised a package called rtv, and now consider it
Description: A package for conveniently representing, manipulating and
visualising time data. Here, time is regarded as a random variable,
and objects are used to represent realisations of that random
variable. This is particularly useful for change points, irregular
timeseries and failure events. There's a strong emphasis on continuous
representations of time, with user-specified origins and units.
The package contains classes notably similar to the POSIXt classes.
However, the classes are based on a somewhat different philosophy.
The major advantage of the package, is that crtv objects (similar to
POSIXct objects) allow user-specified origins and units.
It also allows time events to be represented as fractional months or
