Defines functions print.OptPath makeOptPath

#' @title Create optimization path.
#' @description Optimizers can iteratively log their evaluated points into this
#' object. Can be converted into a data.frame with `as.data.frame(x,
#' discretes.as.factor = TRUE / FALSE)`.
#' A optimization path has a number of path elements, where each element
#' consists of: the value of the decision variables at this point, the values of
#' the performance measures at this point, the date-of-birth (dob) of this
#' point, the end-of-life (eol) of this point and possibly an error message. See
#' also [addOptPathEl()].
#' For discrete parameters always the name of the value is stored as a
#' character. When you retrieve an element with [getOptPathEl()], this name is
#' converted to the actual discrete value.
#' If parameters have associated transformation you are free to decide whether
#' you want to add x values before or after transformation, see argument
#' `add.transformed.x` and [trafoOptPath()].
#' The S3 class is a list which stores at least these elements:
#' \describe{
#' \item{par.set [ParamSet()]}{See argument of same name.}
#' \item{y.names [`character`]}{See argument of same name.}
#' \item{minimize [`logical`]}{See argument of same name.}
#' \item{add.transformed.x `logical(1)`}{See argument of same name.}
#' \item{env [`environment`]}{Environment which stores the optimization path.
#'   Contents depend on implementation.}
#' }
#' @template arg_parset
#' @param y.names (`character`)\cr
#'   Names of performance measures that are optimized or logged.
#' @param minimize (`logical`)\cr
#'   Which of the performance measures in y.names should be minimized?
#'   Vector of booleans in the same order as `y.names`.
#' @param add.transformed.x (`logical(1)`)\cr
#'   If some parameters have associated transformations, are you going to add x
#'   values after they have been transformed? Default is `FALSE`.
#' @param include.error.message (`logical(1)`)\cr
#'   Should it be possible to include an error message string (or NA if no error
#'   occurred) into the path for each evaluation? This is useful if you have
#'   complex, long running objective evaluations that might fail. Default is
#'   `FALSE`.
#' @param include.exec.time (`logical(1)`)\cr
#'   Should it be possible to include execution time of evaluations into the
#'   path for each evaluation? Note that execution time could also be entered in
#'   `y.names` as a direct performance measure. If you use this option here,
#'   time is regarded as an extra measurement you might be curious about.
#'   Default is `FALSE`.
#' @param include.extra (`logical(1)`)\cr
#'   Should it be possible to include extra info
#'   into the path for each evaluation?
#'   Default is `FALSE`.
