I know this has got to be easy, but can't figure it out.

I've got a data frame that includes several numeric indices and a date for
each of 1100 records.  I'd like to plot a barplot of the mean of each of
these indices by date.  I've managed to do this:

> barplot(tapply(first.pro.auth.sum, dates(date), mean))

but even though I use the dates(date) function, the x axis displays
numeric labels, not dates. I'd like it to display the dates. Any advice?
