These are POSIXct/POSIXlt methods for the getter generics.

  • get_year() returns the Gregorian year.

  • get_month() returns the month of the year.

  • get_day() returns the day of the month.

  • There are sub-daily getters for extracting more precise components, up to a precision of seconds.

For more advanced component extraction, convert to the calendar type that you are interested in.

# S3 method for POSIXt
get_year(x)

Arguments

x

[POSIXct / POSIXlt]

Value

The component.

Examples

x <- as.POSIXct("2019-01-01", tz = "America/New_York") x <- add_days(x, 0:5) x <- set_second(x, 10:15) get_day(x)
#> [1] 1 2 3 4 5 6
#> [1] 10 11 12 13 14 15
