[R] search functions for use on vector of ordered data

I am looking for some search functions that deal with _ordered data_.
I suppose they already exist but I cannot find any reference of them.
I have a matrix, who's first column is ordered incrementally, with each
value unique and regularly spaced.
(timestamps of observations: number of miliseconds since begining).
I want to be able to find the the column index of the value X listed in
the matrix's first col.
The matrix is quite large, so the use of which(), or other similar
functions are not time efficient enough.
