I apologize if this has been asked before, but I could not find it in search.

Is there support for base time functions or R dates (DateTimeClasses)? It appears not but I wanted to check. For example is there any easy way to calculate the interval between two columns like difftime function performs.

Thank you.

we don't have a date/time data type unfortunately.

a workaround is to express dates with an integer expressing the number of days since a particular date. then you can just subtract them.
