Defines functions Export

Documented in Export

# Export March 2017
# Wrapper for the 'export' function in the 'rio' package that adds automatic support for row names by
# converting the row names to the left-most column of the saved data file.
# 3/15/2017:  S. Weisberg
# 11/2/2021:  A. Zeileis, check for rio availability (so that rio can be in Suggests only)
