It is hard to know exactly what you mean with such a generic question.
If you mean "treat survival as a counting process", then the answer is yes.  The survival 
package in S (which is the direct ancestor of the Splus package, which is the direct 
ancestor of the R package) was the very first to do this.  I created the feature in 1984.
