# times-methods

##### Compute Time Statistics of Sequences

Computes the gaps, the minimum or maximum gap, or the span of sequences.

- Keywords
- methods

##### Usage

```
# S4 method for timedsequences
times(x, type = c("times", "gaps", "mingap", "maxgap", "span"))
```

##### Arguments

- x
an object.

- type
a string value specifying the type of statistic.

##### Value

If `type = "items"`

returns a list of vectors of events times
corresponding with the elements of a sequence.

If `type = "gaps"`

returns a list of vectors of time differences
between consecutive elements of a sequence.

Otherwise, a vector corresponding with the *elements* of `x`

.

##### Note

Gap statistics are not defined for sequences of size one, i.e. which
contain a single element. `NA`

is used for undefined values.

FIXME lists are silently reduced to vector if possible.
