hms.to.seconds {kimisc}R Documentation

Converts a time value given in H:M:S format to the number of seconds since midnight

Description

This function is very similar to strptime with the %X conversion specification. Anything with three numbers between two colons is interpreted as a time, no consistency check is performed on the actual hour, minute and second values. Thus, strings like 25:15:00 and 23:78:101 also will be converted. Incorrectly formatted strings are converted to NA with a warning.

Usage

hms.to.seconds(x)

Arguments

x

A (vector of) strings in H:M:S format.

Value

A (vector of) integer values of the same length as x.
