Defines functions XenaFilter

Documented in XenaFilter

##' Filter a XenaHub Object
##'
##' One of main functions in **UCSCXenatools**. It is used to filter
##' `XenaHub` object according to cohorts, datasets. All datasets can be found
##' at <https://xenabrowser.net/datapages/>.
##'
##' @param x a [XenaHub] object
##' @param filterCohorts default is `NULL`. A character used to filter cohorts,
##' regular expression is supported.
##' @param filterDatasets default is `NULL`. A character used to filter datasets,
##' regular expression is supported.
##' @param ignore.case if `FALSE`, the pattern matching is case sensitive
##' and if `TRUE`, case is ignored during matching.
##' @param ... other arguments except `value` passed to [base::grep()].
##' @return a `XenaHub` object
