#' @title Convert FiSAT's starting point to t_anchor value
#'
#' @description Starting points returned or chosen within FiSAT are not supported
#'    in TropFishR. Instead \code{t_anchor} takes on the job of anchoring VBGF growth curves on
#'    a temporal axis. This function allows to convert FiSAT's starting points to \code{t_anchor} values
#'
#' @param param list with dates, midLengths, and catch
#' @param par list with growth parameters 'Linf' and 'K' of VBGF
#' @param startingLength starting length as returned by FiSAT, indicating the length within
#'    the starting sample cut by a growth curve
#' @param startingSample starting sample as returned by FiSAT, indicating the sample which is
#'    cut by a growth curve
#'
#' @keywords function lfq startingPoints t_anchor
#'
#' @examples
#' data(synLFQ5)
