Re: [R] plotting issue with timestamps

          Have you considered the "zoo" package? It has a "vignette" that I found very useful. After 'install.packages("zoo")', try the following:

	  Zoo <- vignette("zoo")
# to open the narrative vignette in an Adobe Acrobat reader

# to open a script file in RGui to make it easy for you # to process the R commands line by line, edit them as you wish, etc.

# If you use XEmacs, do NOT use "edit(Zoo)". Instead do the following:


# This will write the R commands to a file, which you can then open # and process line by line as in RGui.
