#' Evaluate a grid of half-window width combinations to use for weighted regression
#' 
#' @param dat_in input data object to use with weighted regression
#' @param grid_in optional input matrix of half-window widths created with \code{\link{createsrch}}, a default search grid is used if no input

#' @param ... arguments passed to or from other methods

#' @details Processing time can be reduced by setting up a parallel backend, as in the examples.  Note that this is not effective for small k-values (e.g., < 4) because each fold is sent to a processor, whereas the window width combinations in \code{grid_in} are evaluated in sequence.  
#' 
#' This function should only be used to view the error surface associated with finite combinations of window-width combinations.  A faster function to identify the optimal window widths is provided by \code{\link{winsrch_optim}}. 
#' 
#' @return A data frame of the search grid with associated errors for each cross-validation result.  Errors for each grid row are averages of all errors for each fold used in cross-validation.
