Read zipped file into R

Sometimes I do not want to unzip files before reading them to R. There is a nice way of reading zipped file (via a tmp dir) into R.

 myfile <- read.csv(zip.file.extract("~/files/test.csv", "myzip.zip"))
 

Where the file test.csv is actually located in the: ~/files/myzip.zip/test.csv.
