I'm using R V 2.2.1. When I try an example from the as.Date help page, I get an error.

> x <- c("1jan1960", "2jan1960", "31mar1960", "30jul1960")
> z <- as.Date(x, "%d%b%Y")
Error in strptime(x, format) : 2 arguments passed to 'strptime' which requires 3
>

Any suggestions would be appreciated.

Thanks,

Rob
