#' Collect multiple assertions
#' @name AssertCollection
#'
#' @param collection [\code{AssertCollection}]\cr
#'  Object of type \dQuote{AssertCollection} (constructed via \code{makeAssertCollection}).
#' @description
#' The function \code{makeAssertCollection()} returns a simple stack-like
#' closure you can pass to all functions of the \code{assert*}-family.
#' All messages get collected and can be reported with \code{reportAssertions()}.
#' Alternatively, you can easily write your own report function or customize the the output of
#' the report function to a certain degree.
#' See the example on how to push custom messages or retrieve all stored messages.
#' @return \code{makeAssertCollection()} returns an object of class \dQuote{AssertCollection} and
#'  \code{reportCollection} returns invisibly \code{TRUE} if no error is thrown (i.e., no message was
#'  collected).
#' @examples
#' x = "a"
#' coll = makeAssertCollection()
#'
#' print(coll$isEmpty())
#' assertNumeric(x, add = coll)
#' coll$isEmpty()
#' coll$push("Custom error message")
#' coll$getMessages()
#' \dontrun{
#'   reportAssertions(coll)
#' }
