Usage
julian(m, d, y, origin = c(month = 1, day = 1, year = 1970))
month.day.year(jul, origin = c(month = 1, day = 1, year = 1970))
leap.year(y)
day.of.week(month, day, year)
Arguments
m
vector of month numbers.
d
vector of day numbers.
y
vector of years.
jul
vector of Julian Dates, i.e., number of days since origin.
origin
vector specifying the origin as month, day, and year. If missing, it defaults to options(chron.origin) if this is non-null, otherwise c(month = 1, day = 1, year = 1970).
Value

  • A vector of Julian dates (number of days since origin) when julian() is called, or a list with members month, day, year corresponding to the input Julian dates if month.day.year() is called. leap.year() returns a logical vector indicating whether the corresponding year is a leap year. day.of.week() returns a number between 0 and 6 to specify day of the week--0 refers to Sunday.

    These functions were taken from Becker, Chambers, and Wilks (1988), and were slightly modified to take chron and dates objects; some also take the extra argument origin.
