[R] About installing the lubridate package

I just installed the Mavericks binary on my OSX Sierra without problems:

install.packages("lubridate", repos='https://cran.revolutionanalytics.com')

A google search would have found this essentially instantly!

As for native R functions for parsing dates: of course!


Again, a google search would have found this (e.g. on "parse dates in
R"). Please make a minimal effort to search before posting such "where
do I find" queries here.
