#' @title Connect to ICILS Data
#'
#' @description Opens a connection to an ICILS data file residing
#'              on the disk and returns an \code{edsurvey.data.frame} with
#'              information about the file and data.
#'
#' @param path a character value to the full directory to the ICILS extracted SPSS (.sav) set of data
#' @param countries a character vector of the country/countries to include using
#'                  the three-digit ISO country code.
#'                  A list of country codes can be found on Wikipedia at
#'                  \url{https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/ISO_3166-1#Current_codes},
#'                  or other online sources. Consult the \emph{ICILS User Guide} to help determine what countries
#'                  are included within a specific testing year of ICILS.
#'                  To select all countries, use a wildcard value of \strong{\code{*}}.
#' @param dataSet a character value of either \code{student} (the default if not specified) or \code{teacher} to
#'                  indicate which set of data is returned.
#'                  The student-level and teacher-level datasets cannot both be returned at the same time, unlike other IEA datasets.
#'
#' @param forceReread a logical value to force rereading of all processed data.
#'                    The default value of \code{FALSE} will speed up the \code{readICILS} function
#'                    by using existing read-in data already processed.
#'
#' @param verbose a logical value to either print or suppress status message output.
#'                The default value is \code{TRUE}.
#'
#' @details Reads in the unzipped files downloaded from the ICILS international database(s) using the \href{http://rms.iea-dpc.org/}{IEA Study Data Repository}.
#'          Data files require the SPSS data file (.sav) format using the default filenames.
#'
#' @return
#'  an \code{edsurvey.data.frame} for a single specified country or an \code{edsurvey.data.frame.list} if multiple countries specified
#'
