One possible way would be to use paste()
#[1] 15:00:00

#or you could use

#[1] "15H 0M 0S"

Subject: [R] Chron format question h:m not working

R 2.12.2 on Scientific Linux 6.4

chron(times.="15:00:00", format=c(times="h:m:s"))

#doesn't work
chron(times.="15:00", format=c(times="h:m"))

From chron Manual:
The times format can be any permutation of "h", "m", and "s" separated by any one non-special character. The default is "h:m:s".

what am I missing?

many thanks,

Let's not spend our time and resources thinking about things that are so little or so large that all they really do for us is puff us up and make us feel like gods.  We are mammals, and have not exhausted the annoying little problems of being mammals.
