Dear all,

in a previuos message was asked  how get the mode of
continous distribution. Now I'm asking if there an R
function to obtain the mode in case of a discrete
distribution or categorial data. The only way is to
use table():

> x<-rep(1:5,100)
> s<-sample(x,40)
> t<-table(s)
> t
 1  2  3  4  5 
13 10  5  4  8 

the mode is value=1
