```You can do this in 2 steps - have cut() make a factor with a different
level for each time period
then use levels<-() to merge some of the levels.
> z <- cut(.5:3.5, breaks=c(0,1,2,3,4), labels=c("0-1", "1-2", "2-3",
"3-4"))
> levels(z)
[1] "0-1" "1-2" "2-3" "3-4"
> levels(z) <- c("between", "1-2", "between", "3-4") # or
levels(z)[c(1,3)] <- "between"
> str(z)
Factor w/ 3 levels "between","1-2",..: 1 2 1 3
