[R] data in form of a date

Dear all,

I often use dates and times in analyses.  I just can't figure out how to 
format my date or time column in R.  So, apparently R sees the date as 
something other than date (character).  Let's say I am opening a CSV 
file, one of the columns of which is a date or time.  How do I specify 
that when opening the file?

Thanks for the help,
