Description Sebastian Meyer 2016-03-17 20:39:24 UTC
The "tsp<-" help page says:

    Assigning ‘NULL’ which removes the ‘tsp’ attribute _and_ any
    ‘"ts"’ (or ‘"mts"’) class of ‘x’.

I observe:

    z <- ts(cbind(1:5,1:5))
    # [1] "mts"    "ts"     "matrix"
    tsp(z) <- NULL
    # [1] "mts"    "matrix"

Although this behaviour is probably in line with the logical "or" in the documentation, I think the NULL assignment should remove both the "ts" _and_ "mts" classes.

For the record: The "tsp" attribute is removed correctly and, for univariate time series, assigning NULL correctly removes the "ts" class.
