[R] Discrete random variable

I would create a function rdiscrete that returns the value of a discrete random
variable X defined on a subset which can change, and for the same probability for
the issue, eg:
X could sometimes take a value in the subset {2,3,4} with probability 1/3 for each
and sometimes X could take a value in the subset {2,3,4,5,6} with probability
1/5 for each

The function should have one parameter only: a vector, composed by the values of
the definition subset of X.

Thank your for your help,
