Defines functions convertParamSetToIrace

Documented in convertParamSetToIrace

#' @title Converts a ParamSet object to a parameter object of the irace package.
#'
#' @description Converts to a textual description used in irace and then
#' potentially calls [readParameters][irace::readParameters].
#'
#' @template arg_parset
#' @param as.chars (`logical(1)`)\cr Return results as character vector of lines
#'   `FALSE` or call [irace::readParameters()] on it (`TRUE`). Default is
#'   `FALSE`.
#' @return [[list()]].
#' @export
