blaise: Read and Write FWF Files in the 'Blaise' Format

Can be used to read and write a fwf with an accompanying 'Blaise' datamodel. Blaise is the software suite built by Statistics Netherlands (CBS). It is essentially a way to write and collect surveys and perform statistical analysis on the data. It stores its data in fixed width format with an accompanying metadata file, this is the Blaise format. The package automatically interprets this metadata and reads the file into an R dataframe. When supplying a datamodel for writing, the dataframe will be automatically converted to that format and checked for compatibility. Supports dataframes, tibbles and LaF objects.
