Documented in evalcdf

#' Evaluates and empirical cdf at a value
#' 
#' Finds the closted observed value less than u and returns the probability.

#' @param cdf The cdf to be evaluated. The first column is the sorted vector x, the second column is the probability that X is less than x. 
#' @param u A vector of values at which the cdf will be evaluated. 
#'
#' @return output A numeric vector between 0 and 1
