#' Analysis of genome-scale DNA methylation data with RnBeads
#'
#' RnBeads facilitates comprehensive analysis of various types of DNA methylation data at the genome scale. It extends
#' previous approaches for such analysis by high throughput capabilities, as well as presenting results in a
#' comprehensive, highly interpretable fashion. 
#'
#' The complete analysis can be performed by calling the function \code{\link{rnb.run.analysis}}.

#' RnBeads option values and restrictions
#'
#' The values of options in RnBeads are stored in dedicated R objects accompanying the package. These objects are named
#' \code{infos}, \code{accepted}, \code{current} and \code{previous}. They should not be loaded or otherwise operated on
#' by users. Please refer to the documentation of \code{\link{rnb.options}} for accessing and modifying option values in
#' \pkg{RnBeads}.
#'
#' @docType data
#' @keywords datasets
#' @name accepted
#' @aliases current infos previous
#' @format \code{infos} is a \code{data.frame} containing information about all options in \pkg{RnBeads}. Row names in
#'         this table are the option names; the column names are \code{"Type"}, \code{"Named"}, \code{"Null"},
#'         \code{"Max"}, \code{"Min"}, \code{"MaxInclusive"} and \code{"MinInclusive"}.
#'         \code{accepted} is a \code{list} containing the sets of accepted values for some of the options.
#'         \code{current} is a \code{list} with current values for all options.
#'         \code{previous} is a \code{list} with previous values for the affected options; this list is only temporarily
#'         used while setting option values through \code{\link{rnb.options}} or \code{\link{rnb.xml2options}}.

#' LUMP Support
#'
#' The sites used by the LUMP algorithm for estimating immune cell content are stored in an object named
#' \code{lump.hg19}. This object should not be loaded or otherwise operated on by users. Please refer to the
#' documentation of \code{\link{rnb.execute.lump}} for information on the algorithm and its implementation in
#' \pkg{RnBeads}.

#' @docType data
#' @keywords datasets
#' @name lump.hg19
#' @format \code{lump.*} is a \code{list} of non-empty \code{integer} matrices, one per supported platform. Every
#'         \code{matrix} contains exactly two columns, denoting chromosome index and chromosome-based index,
#'         respectively. These indices refer to positions within the probe/site annotation table employed by
#'         \pkg{RnBeads} for the corresponding platform.

#' LUMP Support (hg38)
#'
#' Those are the same sites as reported in \code{lump.hg19}, but lifted to `hg38` with UCSC's liftOver functionality. This only
#' applies for the CpG-wise sites; i.e. those used for sequencing data sets, since `hg38` is not supported for array-based data
#' sets.
