Re: [R] Zoo plotting behavior

Like for instance that the xlim is small enough where the plot is showing the day instead of the year (I believe). Now that I have figured this out (I think). I would like to know if there is a way to tell plot.zoo how to print the date ranges easily. When I did the example in my previous email only 9/09 showed up. I am trying to close in on widows of data and need a little more resolution on the x-axis. For instance when I am inside of a month of data the month day- inside of a day the day time or something like this.
Any thoughts would be appreciated

Let's not spend our time and resources thinking about things that are so
little or so large that all they really do for us is puff us up and make us
feel like gods. We are mammals, and have not exhausted the annoying little
problems of being mammals.
