Hi R users,
I have a maybe small problem which I cannot solve by myself.
I want to convert
"chron" "dates" "times"
to a number with as.POSIXct.
The Problem is that I can't choose different timezones. I always get "CEST"
and not "UTC" what I need.
date = as.POSIXct(y,tz="UTC")
"2006-04-30 11:35:00 CEST"
Then I tried to use as.POSIXlt.
date = as.POSIXlt(y,tz="UTC")
"2006-04-30 11:35:00 UTC"
The advantage is I get time in UTC but now the problem is that I can
date <- as.double(date)/86400
it is not working with as.POSIXlt but with as.POSIXct
With best regards
