## Lengths of event sequences

### Description

The length of an event sequence is its time span, i.e., the total time of observation. This information is useful to perform for instance a survival analysis. The function
`seqelength`

retrieves the lengths of the provided sequences, while
`seqelength <-`

sets the length of the sequences.

### Usage

```
seqelength(eseq, s)
seqelength(eseq, s) <- value
```

### Arguments

`eseq` |
An event sequence object ( |

`value` |
A list of sequence lengths. |

`s` |
Deprecated. Use |

### Value

A numeric vector with the lengths of the sequences.

### Examples

```
data(actcal.tse)
actcal.eseq <- seqecreate(actcal.tse)
## Since end.event is not specified, contains no sequence lengths
## We set them manually as 12 for all sequences
sl <- numeric()
sl[1:2000] <- 12
seqelength(actcal.eseq) <- sl
actcal.eseq[1:10]
## Retrieve lengths
slen <- seqelength(actcal.eseq)
summary(slen)
```
