# DateListPlot

 DateListPlot[{{date1, v1}, {date2, v2}, ...}] plots points with values at a sequence of dates. DateListPlot[{v1, v2, ...}, datespec]plots points with dates at equal intervals specified by datespec. DateListPlot[{list1, list2, ...}]plots several lists of values.
• DateListPlot[list] by default plots each value in list as a separate point.
• Possible forms of datei include: »
 t absolute time given as a single number {y,m,d,h,m,s} DateList specification {y}, {y, m}, {y, m, d}, ... shortened date list "string" DateString specification
• In shortened date lists, omitted elements are taken to have default values {y, 1, 1, 0, 0, 0}.
• Possible forms of datespec include: »
 {start,end} dates from start to end in equal steps {start,Automatic,step} dates beginning with start in steps step {Automatic,end,step} dates ending with end in steps step start dates with steps determined by the form of start
• The step in datespec can be a {y, m, d, h, m, s} date list specification or any of the special forms "Year", "Quarter", "Month", "Week", "Day", "Hour", "Minute", "Second", "Millisecond". »
• If no explicit step is given, the step used will be the smallest time unit specified explicitly in start.
 Axes Automatic whether to include axes DateFunction Automatic how to convert dates to standard form DateTicksFormat Automatic format for date tick labels Frame True whether to put a frame around the plot GridLines {Automatic,None} whether to include grid lines PlotRange Automatic range of values to include
