Documented in write.qvalue

#' @title Write results to file
#' @description Write the results of the q-value object to a file.
#' @param x A q-value object.
#' @param file Output filename (optional).
#' @param sep Separation between columns.
#' @param eol Character to print at the end of each line.
#' @param na String to use when there are missing values.
#' @param row.names logical. Specify whether row names are to be printed.
#' @param col.names logical. Specify whether column names are to be printed.
#'
#' @details The output file includes: (i) p-values, (ii)
#' q-values (iii) local FDR values, and (iv) the estimate of \eqn{\pi_0}{pi_0},
#' one per line. If an FDR significance
#' level was specified in the call to \code{\link{qvalue}}, the significance
#' level is printed and an indicator of significance is included.
#'
#' @return Nothing of interest.
