#' Partial Argument Matching
#'
#' @description
#' This is an extensions to \code{\link[base]{match.arg}} with support for \code{\link{AssertCollection}}.
#' The behavior is very similar to \code{\link[base]{match.arg}}, except that \code{NULL} is not
#' a valid value for \code{x}.
#'
#' @param x [character]\cr
#'  User provided argument to match.
#' @param choices [character()]\cr
#'  Candidates to match \code{x} with.
#' @param several.ok [logical(1)]\cr
#'  If \code{TRUE}, multiple matches are allowed, cf. \code{\link[base]{match.arg}}.
#' @template add
#' @template var.name
#' @return Subset of \code{choices}.
#' @export
#' @examples
#' matchArg("k", choices = c("kendall", "pearson"))
