[R] Data Import to R

While importing .csv files into R, all data are converted to factor-by
default. But, how can I preserve the original format of the data like
numeric to numeric, integer to integer, character to character etc while
importing from csv to R environment.

I tried several ways, no thing helps. I used 'stringsAsFactor = FALSE'
command, it did convert all data to characters. But, I wanted to preserve
the numeric data to be in integer or double.

Any idea? examples?
