[R] order()

In the order() help file, there is an example like:
     a <- c(4, 3, 2, NA, 1)
     b <- c(4, NA, 2, 7, 1)
     z <- cbind(a, b)
     (o <- order(a, b)); z[o, ]

How can I do something like "order a in ascending order, b in descending
order"?  And say I have a third vector c, and I'd like to add this to the
previous condition "a ascending, b descending, c descending".  How can I
do this?
