#' @title Charge and create an AffyBatch object 
#' @description Charges the data from a file with the GSM samples compressed using the "filelist.txt" file to identify the GSM ID
#' and create the AffyBatch object finally.
#' @param GSE The name of the file with the compressed samples data.
#' @param directory The path file where the samples and the "filelist" file are to create the AffyBatch object, by default is the current directory.
#' @seealso \code{\link{getInfo}} to download expression data from GEO DataSets included the "filelist" file.
#' @return An AffyBatch Object.
#' @examples 
#' # Creating the AffyBatch object from raw data downloaded
#' # The data is from partial experiment results from Greene JG(2006), GEO accession: GSE4773
