csvread: Fast Specialized CSV File Loader

Functions for loading large (10M+ lines) CSV and other delimited files, similar to read.csv, but typically faster and using less memory than the standard R loader. While not entirely general, it covers many common use cases when the types of columns in the CSV file are known in advance. In addition, the package provides a class 'int64', which represents 64-bit integers exactly when reading from a file. The latter is useful when working with 64-bit integer identifiers exported from databases. The CSV file loader supports common column types including 'integer', 'double', 'string', and 'int64', leaving further type transformations to the user.
