Method for hist

Note that unlike the default method, breaks
is a required argument.
Using breaks = "quarters"
will create intervals of 3 calendar
months, with the intervals beginning on January 1, April 1,
July 1 or October 1, based upon min(x)
as appropriate.
With the default right = TRUE
, breaks will be set
on the last day of the previous period when breaks
is
"months"
, "quarters"
or "years"
. Use
right = FALSE
to set them to the first day of the
interval shown in each bar.
