```Dear R-Help,

First post, be gentle...

I am new to R: I can perform basic functions using R code - import and
export data, load packages and not much else at this stage.

Objective: to create a Joint Probability Table and save as a csv file

Input: A csv file (with headers) containing raw data, arranged by
columns.

Variable: number of bins for each column of data, default to 5 bins
per column.

Data import and export in R I can do, however I am a complete n00b at
this type of statistical processing and I would really appreciate some

I want to take the input data and create, as final output, a Joint
Probability Table. I can do this manually in Excel, however I am
hoping that there is a better and more repeatable way to do so in R.

An example of the steps taken is available in an Excel spreadsheet at

Is what I am attempting to do covered by some available function(s) or
package(s) in R? After spending a while searching the manual and the
various on-line help pages for “Joint Probability Table” I am
beginning to suspect that it may not be, but my lack of experience in
both stats and R could well mean that I am missing the clues.
