quantmod getOptionChain Interpret List Label As Date

John Sparks
Hi R Helpers,


Is it possible to interpret the top level of the list as a date after downloading all the option chain data for a ticker?


For example, after I run


aapl_total<-getOptionChain("AAPL", NULL)


the top descriptor of the lists is a date (Mar.09.2018, Mar.23.2018, etc.).


So if want to subset down to those parts of the list that correspond to say, (expiration) year=2019; or say, Mar or Apr or May of 2019, is this possible?


Guidance would be appreciated.

Thanks.
