Hello,

          Given a vector of characters, or factors, denoting the date in the following way: 28/03/2000, is there a method of 1) Computing the earliest of these dates; 2) Using this as a base, then converting all the other dates into merely the number of days after this minimum date Many thanks
Richard Hillary
