[R] Doing Mathematica Quantile function in R

I am an R newbie trying to do some calculations I do in Mathematica in
R on a GNU/Linux system.
The main thing I am interested in doing is taking a 0.999 quantile on
a data set in a file who's data is normally distributed, say foo.csv.
e.g in Mathematica if I have something like this :
In R I can load all the data into b with :
scan("foo.csv") -> b
now, I can't find a function anywhere which would calculate the
Quantile on the dataset in b.
Also, I am guessing Mathematica does a lot of special things to ensure
a very accurate Quantile value, so if anyone has any ideas on
incorporating those as well, it would be great.
Thanks and Regards,
