Defines functions getAnnot

Documented in getAnnot

#' @title Get CpG annotation
#' @description This function gets CpG IDs and their corresponding gene symbols.
#' @param array.type A string. Either "450K" or "EPIC". Default is "450K".
#' @param group A string. "all", "body", "promoter1" or "promoter2". 
#' Default is "all". If group = "body", only CpGs on gene body will be 
#' pulled out. If group = "promoter1" or group = "promoter2", 
#' only CpGs on promoters will be pulled out. Here is the definition of "body", 
#' "promoter1" and "promoter2" according to the annotation in 
#' IlluminaHumanMethylation450kanno.ilmn12.hg19 or 
#' IlluminaHumanMethylationEPICanno.ilm10b4.hg19. 
#' \itemize{
#'   \item body: CpGs whose gene group correspond to "Body" or "1stExon" 
#'   \item promoter1: CpGs whose gene group correspond to "TSS1500" or "TSS200"
#'   \item promoter2: CpGs whose gene group correspond to "TSS1500", "TSS200", 
#'   "1stExon", or "5'UTR". 
#' }
#' If group = "all", all CpGs will be pulled out.
#' @import IlluminaHumanMethylation450kanno.ilmn12.hg19

#' @importFrom stringr str_length
#' @details The implementation of the function is modified
#' from .flattenAnn function in missMethyl package.
#' @return A data frame contains CpG IDs and gene symbols.
