what format are your dates? use str. If they're already one of the many date
objects, you can use ?order. Even if they're not, it seems to me they should
sort correctly as strings with order also.
as far as formatting your dates, depending on which format you want: ?as.POSIXct
and ?as.POSIXlt also check ?strptime
