# S3 method for default

Arguments

vector of years.

jul

vector specifying the origin as month, day, and year. If missing, it defaults to getOption("chron.origin") if this is non-null, otherwise c(month = 1, day = 1, year = 1970).

further arguments to be passed to or from methods.

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..
