#' @title Summary of Forecast Combination
#' @description \code{summary} method for class \sQuote{foreccomb_res}. Includes information about combination method,
#' combination weights assigned to the individual forecast models, as well as an accuracy evaluation of the combined
#' forecast.
#'
#' @param object An object of class 'foreccomb'. Contains training set (actual values + matrix of model forecasts) and optionally a test set.
#' @param x An object of class 'foreccomb'. Contains training set (actual values + matrix of model forecasts) and optionally a test set.
#' @param ... potential further arguments (require by generic)
