summary.din <- function(object, top.n.skill.classes=6, overwrite=FALSE, ...)
{
    # Call: generic
    # Input:
    #   object of class din
    #   top.n.skill.classes: a numeric, specifying the number of skill classes,
    #  starting with the most frequent, to be returned. Default value is 6.
    #   log.file: an optional character vector, specifying the directory and/or filename for an extensive log file.
    #   overwrite: an optional boolean, specifying wether or not the method is supposed to
    #   overwrite an existing log.file. If the log.file exists and overwrite is FALSE,
    #    the user is asked to confirm the overwriting.
    # Output: a named list, of the class summary.din (to be passed to print.summary.din),
    #    consisting of the following five components
    #     CALL: a character specifying the model rule, the number of items and the
    #      number of attributes underlying the items.
    #      IDI: a vector giving the item discrimination index. (see help file)
    #      SKILL.CLASSES: a vector giving the top.n.skill.classes most frequent skill
    #             classes and the corresponding class probability.
    #      AIC: a numeric giving the AIC of the specified model object.
    #      BIC: a numeric giving the BIC of the specified model object.
