[R] day, month, year functions

I'm trying to turn a date into something productive. (Not what you may be thinking....)
I want three functions so I could take a "date" object and get the day of week, month, and year from it.
xx <- as.Date("2006-01-05")
month(xx) equal 1
day(xx) equal 5
year(xx) equal 2006
I'm aware of the weekdays() and months() functions in the base package. But they return a character object which requires some coding to convert into a numeric value.
I've also tried the sday.of.week() in fCalendar but it doesn't like my date,
Error in Ops.Date(sdates, 10000) : %/% not defined for Date objects
Do these functions exist in some package I'm not aware of?
Thanks in adv.
