Hello R Help,

I'm working in a project with a software that register date and time data in serial time format. This format is used by excel, for exemple. In this format, 40597.3911423958 is 2011/2/23 09:23:15. First part is number os days since 1900/1/1, and second part is a fraction of a day.

I need to make this transformation in R, and use it to make some algebrian operations. I found that function 'serialNumber' of package 'cxxPack' transform a as.data class object in this format, but without time fraction. But I can't find nothing to do the inverse way, transform serial date format in a POSIX class, for exemple.

Since now, thanks for your time and atention.

All best,

"Fica proibido o uso da palavra liberdade,

a qual será suprimida dos dicionários

e do pântano enganoso das bocas.

A partir deste instante

a liberdade será algo vivo e transparente

como um fogo ou um rio,

e a sua morada será sempre

o coração do homem."

(Thiago de Mello)
