[R] Summary Stats (not summary(x))

I'm looking for a function that lists a few summary stats for a column (or row) of data. I'm aware of summary(x), but that does not give me what I'm looking for.
I'm actually looking for something that is very similar to the descriptive statistics tool in excel; i.e. Mean, Std. Error, Std. Deviation, Kurtosis. I'm positive that I came across a function that did this (possibly in Rmetrics), but now I can't find it. I lost it in the endless mass of R functions.

Any help would be appreciated.
