[R] Finding vector entries

I am just starting to learn R and am finding it to be very powerful.

I want to be able to analyse large vectors of data using boxplot to find
outliers in the following way:

boxplot(x, range=1)$out

This works fine, returning the values which lie outside the whisker but I
then want to know at what point in the vector, x the outliers lie (in other
words, I want to find the index of the vector).

Is there an easy way to do this? Either by using a different option in
boxplot or by searching x for those specific values afterwards.
