Defines functions get_pheno

Documented in get_pheno

#' Get the phenotype matrix
#' 
#' This function can return a number of different trait matrices
#' depending on the arguments.
#' 
#' @param data_obj a \code{\link{Cape}} object
#' @param scan_what A character string. One of "eigentraits", "normalized.trait",
#' or "raw_traits." If "eigentraits" the function returns the eigentraits matrix.
#' If "normalized_traits" the function returns the trait matrix after mean-centering
#' and normalizing. If "raw.trait" the function returns the trait matrix before 
#' mean-centering and normalization were applied.
#' @param covar A character value indicating which, if any, covariates the traits
#' should be adjusted for. If covariates are specified, the function fits a linear
#' model to specify the traits with the covariates and returns the matrix of residuals
#' (i.e. the traits after adjusting for the covariates).
#'
#' @return A matrix in which each column is a trait, and each row is an individual.
#' The values correspond to the argument settings described above.
