I'm having a little difficulty with R1.5.1. To wit:
(1) Can anyone explain the following behavior?
> a=strptime("2002-06-01 12:15:01","%Y-%m-%d %H:%M:%S")
 "2002-06-01 12:15:01"
 "1932-04-25 21:46:45"
 "1932-04-25 22:46:45"
(2) Can anyone recommend an introductory R text other than that supplied
with the R package? My objective is to use R
to filter, plot, and regress experimental data. So far I have read the
Intro To R file and have spent many hours hunting through the reference
files to try to understand R syntax and find useful features that are
generally buried within. Of the dozen or so languages that I work with,
this has been one of the most perplexing to learn from the supplied
r-help mailing list -- Read http://www.ci.tuwien.ac.at/~hornik/R/R-FAQ.html
