bounds {CFtime}  R Documentation 
Bounds of the time offsets
Description
CFcompliant NetCDF files store time information as a single offset value for
each step along the dimension, typically centered on the valid interval of
the data (e.g. 12noon for day data). Optionally, the lower and upper values
of the valid interval are stored in a socalled "bounds" variable, as an
array with two rows (lower and higher value) and a column for each offset.
With function bounds()<
those bounds can be set for a CFtime instance. The
bounds can be retrieved with the bounds()
function.
Usage
bounds(x, format)
## S4 method for signature 'CFtime'
bounds(x, format)
bounds(x) < value
## S4 replacement method for signature 'CFtime'
bounds(x) < value
Arguments
x 
A 
format 
Optional. A single string with format specifiers, see

value 
A 
Value
If bounds have been set, an array of bounds values with dimensions
(2, length(offsets)). The first row gives the lower bound, the second row
the upper bound, with each column representing an offset of x
. If the
format
argument is specified, the bounds values are returned as strings
according to the format. NULL
when no bounds have been set.
Examples
cf < CFtime("days since 20240101", "standard", seq(0.5, by = 1, length.out = 366))
as_timestamp(cf)[1:3]
bounds(cf) < rbind(0:365, 1:366)
bounds(cf)[, 1:3]
bounds(cf, "%d%b%Y")[, 1:3]
