  I'm afraid I need a bit more info than this to be able to help. What 
  version of Windows are you using? Can you provide the exact details of
  an example where abline fails? (nb. when posting bugs it's important to
  be as specific as possible about the situation).
  There will be a function that is similar to Unix time but it will be limited
  to the timing functions available in Ansi C. This should be in my hoped for
  release of RDec (we've just been going over the completed changes to the 
  parser and the graphics, my new machine is here and setup so things look 
  hopeful for a Dec. release of the equivalent of 0.60; of course its summer and 
  the surfs up so I can't really promise)
