Dear all R users,    

  Suppose I have a dataset like that, data =    

      1         1.957759e-09
    2         1.963619e-09
    3         1.962807e-09
    4         1.973951e-09
    5         1.983401e-09
    6         1.990894e-09
    7         2.000935e-09
    8         1.998391e-09
    9         1.973322e-09
   10         1.983202e-09
   

  I want to see at which row minimum value of the second column occures.    

  Therefore I made the following loop:    

  i=1
  while (min(data[,2]) != data[i,2])

                         {
                          i = i+1
                         }
                  

> i

[1] 1

  Is there any more effective way to do that in terms of time consumption?    

  Thanks
