[R] dividing vectors into bins with equal widths

Hi R-users,

I am trying to divide a vector (say X) into equal frequency bins. If one uses the hist() 
function, then a histogram is plotted, but with bins of equal widths, and not with bins 
having the same number of data points.

I have then tried the histogram() function as follows:

histogram(X, nint=10, breaks=NULL, equal.widths=F)

This works as I want. However, I can't extract which points are in which bin, or where 
the breakpoints are made.

Can anybody help?
