photobiologyInOut 0.4.18

The main changes from version 0.4.17-1 the previous CRAN release, are:

  • Track code breaking change in ‘readr’ (>= 1.2.0)
  • Fix bug in read_oo_pidata() that was preventing reading of Ocean Optics “Raspberry Pi” Flame files with a sequence header line at the top.
  • Add decoding of file header to extract integration time and number of scans to read_oo_pidata().
  • Improve decoding of file header to extract instrument settings in read_oo_jazdata().

Because of code breaking change in package ‘readr’ this version of ‘photobiologyInOut’ requires ‘readr’ >= 1.2.0 to be installed. Function read_oopi_data() from ‘photobiologyInOut’ < 0.4.18 will not work as expected under ‘readr’ >= 1.2.0. (I thank Jim Hester for making a pull request that solved the problem introduced by the change in ‘readr’.
