Transforms a character or numeric vector into a period object with the specified number of hours, minutes, and seconds. hms() recognizes all non-numeric characters except '-' as separators ('-' is used for negative durations). After hours, minutes and seconds have been parsed, the remaining input is ingored.

ms(..., quiet = FALSE, roll = FALSE)

hm(..., quiet = FALSE, roll = FALSE)

hms(..., quiet = FALSE, roll = FALSE)

Arguments

...

a character vector of hour minute second triples

quiet

logical. When TRUE function evalueates without displaying customary messages.

roll

logical. When TRUE, smaller units are rolled over to higher units if they exceed the conventional limit. For example, hms("01:59:120", roll=TRUE) produces period "2H 1M 0S".

Value

a vector of period objects
