[R] possible to increase precision

I would like to increase the precision/accuracy of R.  That is, I'm  
dealing with numbers exceedingly close to 1, and I would like to  
increase the number of significant digits used in computation.  In  
matlab, you can use vpa() to accomplish this. I'm wondering if there's  
an equivalent or a workaround in R.
