Examples

## Loading the SanMartino precipitation data
data(SanMartinoPPts)
x <- SanMartinoPPts

#Getting the monthly ts
pcp.m <- daily2monthly(x, FUN=sum, na.rm=FALSE)

# From zoo to the input format required by 'FindU.dlyPrcp' function
zoo2RHtest(x=pcp.m, fname="pcp-monthly.txt", tstep.out="monthly", na="-999.0")
