clock_labels {clock}R Documentation

Create or retrieve date related labels

Description

When parsing and formatting dates, you often need to know how weekdays of the week and months are represented as text. These functions allow you to either create your own labels, or look them up from a standard set of language specific labels. The standard list is derived from ICU (https://unicode-org.github.io/icu/) via the stringi package.
