markwear(object, value, which = "counts", rescale.epoch = 60,
	nz = 0, keep.error = FALSE, progbar = TRUE)
## S3 method for class 'acclist'
markwear(object, value, which = "counts", rescale.epoch = 60,
	nz = 0, keep.error = FALSE, progbar = TRUE)
## S3 method for class 'accfile'
markwear(object, value, which = "counts", rescale.epoch = 60,
	nz = 0, keep.error = FALSE, progbar = NULL)

Arguments

object

an object of class acclist or accfile.

value

the length of the time window (in minutes) which contains zero values.

which

either 'counts' or 'steps' for gt1m files or one of c('x','y','z','steps') for gt3x files.

rescale.epoch

epoch expressed in the same unit as acceleromenter epoch to determine multiplier to rescale value (default is 60). See details.

nz

the length of the time window (in minutes) of non-zero value sequences allowed between every two sequences of zero values.

keep.error

logical flag. If FALSE (default) data errors as identified by errorChk will be replaced by NAs.

progbar

logical flag. Should a progress bar be used? Available for Windows only. Argument not used for class accfile.

Details

The accelerometer epoch is assumed to be expressed in seconds. Therefore value is automatically rescaled to value * 60/object$info$epoch.

Value

If object is of class acclist, a list of factors with two levels of the same length as the number of accelerometers files in object. If object is of class accfile, a single factor will be given. Levels are 'non-wear' and 'wear'.
