Hi I am new to Julia, and I am trying to play with it a bit.

Consider this function:

```
function drawValues(fromDistribution, byCount)
#=
inputs:
fromDistribution :
A 2D array
Each element is an array with two elements
The first one is a value, and the second one is the probability of that value
We will draw a value out of this distribution from a random number generator
byCount :
An integer
We draw that many values from the source distribution
=#
values = []
wts = []
for i = 1:length(fromDistribution)
push!(values, fromDistribution[i][1])
push!(wts , fromDistribution[i][2])
end
w = Weights(wts)
res = []
for i = 1:byCount
r = sample(values, w)
push!(res, r)
end
plot(values, wts)
print(res)
end
```

This throws the error :

ERROR: MethodError: no method matching Weights(::Array{Any,1}, ::Float64) Closest candidates are: Weights(::var"#18#V", ::var"#16#S") where {var"#16#S"<:Real, var"#17#T"<:Real, var"#18#V"<:AbstractArray{var"#17#T",1}} at /home/hedgehog/.julia/packages/StatsBase/EA8Mh/src/weights.jl:13

It seems, that the second definition ( `Weights(::Array{Any,1})`

) whould fit. But somehow Julia sees two input arguments?

Please help.
