Dear List,

What is the way in R to plot a graph having date time (e.g. format
12/31/2002 13:12) in the
x axis and numerical value (e.g. temperature) on the Y-axis ?

I could not get 'plot()' to do this as X axis values are non-numeric.
'bwplot()' sorts the date 
values and thereby changes the order of the dates and of Y. The date/time
values have to be
shown on the X-axis as tick values rotated by 90 deg. as there more than 100

I appreciate your suggestions and hints.
