I am sorry i was not clear in my early post.... 

I have used the below code to change my data into date format.. 


data2$date<-strftime(strptime(r, format="(%m/%d/%y %H:%M:%S)"),"%Y-%m-%d")
data2$time<-strftime(strptime(r, format="(%m/%d/%y %H:%M:%S)"),"%H:%M:%S")

now i have a date variable in the below format.. 


while plotting dates using the above format.. i was getting the x-axis in
this way.. 

        2011-04-29    2011-05-05

but i want the values in my x-axis to be in this format.. 

               27 28 29 30 1 2 3 4 
               April             May 

about the error plots.... i was not able to compute the mean and sd values

My data has  the following columns.. 

date, time, height..

 this is the bird data which we recorded.. so i have date, time, height at
which the birds are being detected . so now i want to plot errorbar for
total no.of birds detected on each day.. 

for a simple plot ..i used.. counts<-table(data$date).. i was able to get
the count on each day.. 

then.. barplot(counts).. but i was not able to calculate the mean and sd for

thank you
