##' Get Samples of a XenaHub object according to 'by' and 'how' action arguments
##'
##' One is often interested in identifying samples or features present in each data set,
##' or shared by all data sets, or present in any of several data sets.
##' Identifying these samples, including samples in arbitrarily chosen data sets.
##' @param x a [XenaHub] object
##' @param i default is a empty character, it is used to specify
##' the host, cohort or dataset by `by` option otherwise
##' info will be automatically extracted by code
##' @param by a character specify `by` action
##' @param how a character specify `how` action
##' @return a list include samples
##' @export
##' @examples
##' \dontrun{
##' xe = XenaHub(cohorts = "Cancer Cell Line Encyclopedia (CCLE)")
##' # samples in each dataset, first host
##' x = samples(xe, by="datasets", how="each")[[1]]
##' lengths(x)        # data sets in ccle cohort on first (only) host
