#' Convert TAF Table to Long Format
#'
#' Convert a table from TAF format to long format.
#'
#' @param x a data frame in TAF format.
#' @param names a vector of three column names for the resulting data frame.
#'
#' @return A data frame with three columns.
#'
#' @note
#' TAF stores tables as data frames, usually with a year column as seen in stock
#' assessment reports. The long format is more convenient for analysis and
#' producing plots.
#'
#' @seealso
#' \code{\link{catage.taf}} and \code{\link{catage.long}} describe the TAF and
#' long formats.
#'
#' \code{\link{long2taf}} converts a long table to TAF format.
