Defines functions bbox_from_file

Documented in bbox_from_file

#' @title Retrieve bbox from a spatial file
#' @description Helper function used to retrieve the bounding box of a specified spatial file
#'   recognized by GDAL or OGG: the function reads the extent using gdalinfo or ogrinfo,
#'   converting it to a specified CRS.
#' @param file_path `string` path of a spatial file.
#' @param crs_out `string` proj4string of the desired output projection.
