#' Convert FLR Table to TAF Format
#'
#' Convert a table from FLR format to TAF format.
#'
#' @param x a table of class \code{FLQuant}.
#' @param colname a column name to use if the FLR table contains only one row.
#'
#' @return A data frame in TAF format.
#'
#' @note
#' FLR uses the \code{FLQuant} class to store tables as 6-dimensional arrays,
#' while TAF tables are stored as data frames with a year column.
#'
#' @seealso
#' \code{\link{catage.taf}} describes the TAF format.
#'
#' \code{\link{as.data.frame}} is a method provided by the \pkg{FLCore} package
#' to convert \code{FLQuant} tables to a 7-column long format.
#'
#' \code{\link{TAF-package}} gives an overview of the package.
