#' Propability table
#' 
#' Calculates the propability table using different methods
#' 
#' @param x an object of class table
#' @param method default is \sQuote{dirichlet}. Other available methods: 
#' \sQuote{classical} that is function \code{prop.table()} from package base or method \dQuote{half} that add 1/2 to each cell
#' to avoid zero problems.
#' @param alpha constant used for method \sQuote{dirichlet}
