[R] eigenvectors order

How the eigenvectors output by the eigen() function are ordered. The 
first column corresponds to the largest eigenvalue? or is the last 
column as in Octave?

I'm performing a spatial-temporal analysis of some climatic variables 
so my matrices are MxN (locations*time)and I'm looking for the leading 
EOF's. As I have understand the eigenvectors columns represent those 

Any hints will be appreciated
