Thanks to Jeff, I seem to have the chron package in my computer now, but 
how do I get R to use it? :

package ‘chron’ successfully unpacked and MD5 sums checked

The downloaded binary packages are in
 > days(Date[1])
Error: could not find function "days"
 > ?days
No documentation for ‘days’ in specified packages and libraries:
you could try ‘??days’
 > dates(Date[1])
Error: could not find function "dates"

The solution is to say yes when it asks if you want to install in a local library. R will always look first in that library, so you won't notice the fact that the Program Files library is not updated.
