Actually, you can still use t.test with one vector of data. Say, the 
differences is d ( a vector (or an array of numbers), you can use t.test(d), 
then by default, it testing whether mu=0, you can also specify confidence 
level by adding conf.level = 0.95 etc.

You can also type ?t.test in R command to get more information with R.help.

Hope this helps!
