You have Stata 11, so the FAQ posted earlier is not relevant. Here is a simple solution for you:

***********
clear*
set obs 485

gen double time2=clock("19may2010 13:00:00", "DMY hms")+60*60*1000*(_n-1)
format time2 %tc
gen PM=runiform()

two (line PM time2), xlabel(#4, angle(forty_five) format(%tcDD_Mon))
***********

Stata 11.1/IC

Imagine a dataset of this type where time2 ranges from 19may2010 to 8jun2010, and PM is hourly average.
PM		time2
.082	19may2010 13:00:00
.011	19may2010 14:00:00
.013	19may2010 15:00:00
.011	19may2010 16:00:00
.012	19may2010 17:00:00
.01	19may2010 18:00:00

formatting: PM double 10.0g    time2 double %tc

tw line PM time2
yields x-axis labeled
20may2010 18:40:00   26may2010 13:33:20   01jun2010 08:26:40  07jun2010 03:20:00

which is messy. How may these labels be trimmed to read
20 may   26may   01jun   07jun  ?
