   z <- ts(rnorm(25),start=as.numeric(chron("01/25/99")))

and then get back the times like this:

Does R have any facilities for calendar time series? I'm working 
with a 40 year long, daily time series and I would like to have each 
datum associated with a calendar date. I searched the R website and 
found several new packages for irregular time series but none for cts.

By the way, I just installed 1.8.0 on Mac OSX and the installation 
was effortless! I also very much like having the option of using R 
on the Mac with Aqua or X11. Thanks to all who have contributed to 
the R project!

Thanks for your help,
