Did you look at  help(DateTimeClasses)  as well as the corresponding R News

R has excellent facilities to convert human-readable date formats into an
internal representation which can be transformed further using appropriate
cut, seq, round, ... methods, basic comparison, indexing and arithmetic.  

To paraphrase the MasterCard ads: "Having R for this: priceless". 


Those are my principles, and if you don't like them... well, I have others.
