Howdy. I'm using LineListPlot to visualize discrete event occurrences. Given a dynamic list of absolute times at which approximately 5 million identical events occurred. I used DateListPlot, but it's simply too slow, taking up to 24 seconds to process 1 million events. This is due to the inclusion of date material in the data list being processed. So, used a bin counting method and mapping to create a counts/per unit time. Very fast- under a second. The processed data looks like {1,15,8392,31,...,41242} where each item is acount of the times the event occurred in an amount of dynamic time. By dynamic, I mean that the user has a control of bin length. I've been using ListLinePlot to plot the data- successfully. With one exception. I can't seem to replace the numeric frameticks with textual frameticks. On the x-axis, I can choose any count integer to display, like 250 or 500. But I can't replace "0" with the beginning date-time, and replace 360 with the corresponding date-time. Any ideas how to transform the numeric x-axis labels into textual labels? Thanks, David
