[R] Using DDF With Data Import into R

I am a brand-new R user. The first project I am looking at requires the use of a US Census data file. This data file is very large, and comes with an associated data definition file (DDF). I would like to know if I can use the DDF file in association with the import of the data file (as opposed to creating a very large "scan" statement). This was do-able in SAS, but I have been unable to find an equivalent capability in R. Thanks very much for the help! Kat---
