Documented in dcsis

#' Performs distance correlation sure independence screening \insertCite{li2012feature}{dcortools} with some additional options (such as calculating corresponding tests).
#' @param X A dataframe or matrix.
#' @param Y A vector-valued response having the same length as the number of rows of X.
#' @param k Number of variables that are selected (only used when threshold is not provided).
#' @param threshold If provided, variables with a distance correlation larger than threshold are selected.
#' @param calc.cor If set as "pearson", "spearman" or "kendall", a corresponding correlation matrix is additionally calculated.
#' @param calc.pvalue.cor logical; IF TRUE, a p-value based on the Pearson or Spearman correlation matrix is calculated (not implemented for calc.cor = "kendall") using Hmisc::rcorr.
#' @param return.data logical; specifies if the dcmatrix object should contain the original data.
#' @param test Allows for additionally calculating a test based on distance Covariance. Specifies the type of test that is performed, "permutation" performs a Monte Carlo Permutation test. "gamma" performs a test based on a gamma approximation of the test statistic under the null. "conservative" performs a conservative two-moment approximation. "bb3" performs a quite precise three-moment approximation and is recommended when computation time is not an issue.
#' @param adjustp If setting this parameter to "holm", "hochberg", "hommel", "bonferroni", "BH", "BY" or "fdr", corresponding adjusted p-values are additionally returned for the distance covariance test.
#' @param b specifies the number of random permutations used for the permutation test. Ignored for all other tests.
#' @param bias.corr logical; specifies if the bias corrected version of the sample distance covariance \insertCite{huo2016fast}{dcortools} should be calculated.
#' @param use "all" uses all observations, "complete.obs" excludes NAs, "pairwise.complete.obs" uses pairwise complete observations for each comparison.
#' @param algorithm specifies the algorithm used for calculating the distance covariance. 
#' "fast" uses an O(n log n) algorithm if the observations are one-dimensional and metr.X and metr.Y are either "euclidean" or "discrete", see also \insertCite{huo2016fast;textual}{dcortools}. 
#' "memsave" uses a memory saving version of the standard algorithm with computational complexity O(n^2) but requiring only O(n) memory. 
#' "standard" uses the classical algorithm. User-specified metrics always use the classical algorithm.
#' "auto" chooses the best algorithm for the specific setting using a rule of thumb.
#' "memsave" is typically very inefficient for dcsis and should only be applied in exceptional cases.
#' @return dcmatrix object with the following two additional slots:
#' \item{name selected}{description indices of selected variables.} 
#' \item{name dcor.selected}{distance correlation of the selected variables and the response Y.}
#' @export
