I don't think Triangle is a discrete function? It's a periodic piecewise linear waveform, however it can only be used in the context of the command Waveform if I understand it correctly. It belongs to the Audio package, which I have never used. –  Pickett Nov 6 '13 at 7:49
There's a DiscretePlot function in Mathematica –  RunnyKine Nov 6 '13 at 7:57

But really, this could have been only a 5 second search in the documentation. –  Sjoerd C. de Vries Nov 6 '13 at 8:15
