Coerce Dates

Description

Provides consistent coercion of inputs to IDate with error handling

Usage

coerce_date(dates = NULL)

Arguments

dates

A vector-like input, which the function attempts to coerce via data.table::as.IDate(). Defaults to NULL.

Details

If any of the elements of dates cannot be coerced, this function will result in an error, indicating all indices which cannot be coerced to IDate.

Internal methods of epinowcast assume dates are represented as IDate.

Value

An IDate vector.

  coerce_date(c("2020-05-28", "2020-o5-29")),
  error = function(e) {
    print(e)
