Defines functions getParamTypes

Documented in getParamTypes

#' Returns type information for a parameter set.
#'
#' @template arg_parset
#' @param df.cols (`logical(1)`)\cr
#'   If `FALSE` simply return the parameter types in the set,
#'   i.e., `par$type`.
#'   If `TRUE`, convert types so they correspond to R types of a data.frame
#'   where values of this set might be stored.
#'   This also results in replication of output types for
#'   vector parameters.
#'   Default is `FALSE`.
#' @param df.discretes.as.factor (`logical(1)`)\cr
#'   If `df.cols` is `TRUE`:
#'   Should type for discrete params be `factor` or `character`?
#'   Default is `TRUE`.
#' @param use.names (`logical(1)`)\cr
#'   Name the result vector?
#'   Default is `FALSE`.
#' @param with.nr (`logical(1)`)\cr
#'   Should number from 1 to length be appended to name?
#'   Only used if `use.names` and `df.cols` are `TRUE`.
#'   Default is `TRUE`.
#' @return [`character`].
