Convert the "time.unit" attribute of an existing source_spct object

Description

Function to set the "time.unit" attribute and simultaneously rescaling the spectral data to be expressed in the new time unit. The change is done by reference ('in place')

Usage

1
convertTimeUnit(x, time.unit = NULL, byref = FALSE)

Arguments

x

a source_spct object

time.unit

a character string, either "second", "hour", "day", "exposure" or "none", or a lubridate::duration

byref

logical indicating if new object will be created by reference or by copy of x (currently ignored)

Value

x possibly with the time.unit attribute modified

Note

if x is not a source_spct or a response_spct object, or time.unit is NULL x is returned unchanged, if the existing or new time.unit cannot be converted to a duration, then the returned spectrum will contain NAs.
