[R] Deciles and R

Hi everyone,

I'm a new R user (if this is a really basic question, please do excuse me...) and I'm having some questions regarding a deciles problem.

I have a variable which I need to categorize according to its deciles (X). However, this categorization should be made into another variable (call it NewVar).

Ex. for the quartiles case (just for the sake of exposition, since I need deciles...), I would like to be able to generate the NewVar variable based on the quantiles of X:

	X		NewVar
	1		1
	6		2
	2		1
	4		2
	3		1
	5		2
	12		4
	9		3
	8		3
	10		4
	11		4
	7		3

Is there a function or a way of doing this automatically? I've searched the help files but found no solution to this problem...

Regards,

Nuno
