Did you mean to use "or" instead of "and" in your query?


If so, no comment. If "and," then yes, as that allows a great deal of functionality (ordering, comparisons, time-date arithmetic, etc.) that would otherwise be painful or require special packages. IMO only, of course.

Generally speaking is it better to convert date/time values to "POSIXlt" and
"POSIXct" objects?
