These are year-month-day methods for the arithmetic generics.

Notably, you cannot add days to a year-month-day. For day-based arithmetic, first convert to a time point with as_naive_time() or as_sys_time().

# S3 method for clock_year_month_day
add_years(x, n, ...)

# S3 method for clock_year_month_day
add_quarters(x, n, ...)

# S3 method for clock_year_month_day
add_months(x, n, ...)

Arguments

x

[clock_year_month_day]

A year-month-day vector.

n

[integer / clock_duration]

An integer vector to be converted to a duration, or a duration corresponding to the arithmetic function being used. This corresponds to the number of duration units to add. n may be negative to subtract units of duration.

...

These dots are for future extensions and must be empty.

Value

x after performing the arithmetic.

Details

Adding a single quarter with add_quarters() is equivalent to adding 3 months.

x and n are recycled against each other.

Examples

x <- year_month_day(2019, 1, 1) add_years(x, 1:5)
#> <year_month_day<day>[5]> #> [1] "2020-01-01" "2021-01-01" "2022-01-01" "2023-01-01" "2024-01-01"
y <- year_month_day(2019, 1, 31) # Adding 1 month to `y` generates an invalid date y_plus <- add_months(y, 1:2) y_plus
#> <year_month_day<day>[2]> #> [1] "2019-02-31" "2019-03-31"
# Invalid dates are fine, as long as they are eventually resolved # by either manually resolving, or by calling `invalid_resolve()` # Resolve by returning the previous / next valid moment in time invalid_resolve(y_plus, invalid = "previous")
#> <year_month_day<day>[2]> #> [1] "2019-02-28" "2019-03-31"
invalid_resolve(y_plus, invalid = "next")
#> <year_month_day<day>[2]> #> [1] "2019-03-01" "2019-03-31"
# Manually resolve by setting to the last day of the month invalid <- invalid_detect(y_plus) y_plus[invalid] <- set_day(y_plus[invalid], "last") y_plus
#> <year_month_day<day>[2]> #> [1] "2019-02-28" "2019-03-31"
