# @RdocFunction readCdfGroupNames
#
# @title "Reads group names for a set of units (probesets) in an Affymetrix CDF file"
#
# @synopsis
#
# \description{
#   @get "title".
#
#   This is for instance useful for SNP arrays where the nucleotides used
#   for the A and B alleles are the same as the group names.
# }
#
# \arguments{
#   \item{filename}{The filename of the CDF file.}
#   \item{units}{An @integer @vector of unit indices specifying which
#      units to be read.  If @NULL, all units are read.}
#    \item{truncateGroupNames}{A @logical variable indicating whether unit
#      names should be stripped from the beginning of group names.}
#    \item{verbose}{An @integer specifying the verbose level. If 0, the
#      file is parsed quietly.  The higher numbers, the more details.}
# }
#
# \value{
#    A named @list structure where the names of the elements are the names
#    of the units read.  Each element is a @character @vector with group
#    names for the corresponding unit.
#  }
