[R] read.table() and precision?

I'm currently working with data that has values as large as 99,000,000
but is accurate to 6 decimal places. Unfortunately, when I load the
data using read.table(), it rounds everything to the nearest integer.
Is there any way for me to preserve the information or work with
arbitrarily large floating point numbers?

Thank you,
