Defines functions digitsurface

#' Digitize 3D fixed landmarks and surface semilandmarks
#' An interactive function to digitize three-dimensional (3D) landmarks on a surface lacking known landmarks.
#' Input for the function is either a matrix of vertex coordinates defining a 3D surface object
#' or a mesh3d object as obtained from \code{\link{read.ply}}. 
#' Function for digitizing fixed 3D landmarks and placing "surface sliders", semilandmarks that slide over a surface.
#'  Following selection of fixed points (see digitizing below), function finds surface semilandmarks following 
#'  algorithm outlined in Gunz et al. (2005) and Mitteroecker and Gunz (2009). digitsurface finds the same number of surface 
#'  semilandmarks as the template (created by \code{\link{buildtemplate}}) by downsampling scanned mesh, registering template with 
#'  current specimen via GPA. A nearest neighbor algorithm is used to match template surface landmarks to current specimen's. 
#'  To use function digitsurface, the template must be constructed first, and 'template.txt' be in the working directory. Because template 
#'  matching is based on the correspondence of fixed landmark points in the template and the specimen, a minimum of four fixed landmarks must be used. 
#' Some of the "fixed" landmarks digitized with digitsurface can be later designated as "curve sliders" using function 
#' \code{\link{define.sliders}} if required (see details in \code{\link{digit.fixed}}).
#'  NOTE: Function centers the mesh before digitizing by default (center=TRUE). If one chooses not to center,
#'  specimen may be difficult to manipulate in rgl window.
#' \subsection{Digitizing}{
#' Digitizing is interactive between landmark selection using a mouse (see below for instructions), 
#' and the R console. Once a point is selected, the user is asked if the system should keep or discard the 
#' selection (y/n). If "y", the user is asked to continue to select the next landmark. If "n" the removes the last chosen
#' landmark, and the user is asked to select it again. This can be repeated until the user is comfortable with the landmark
#' chosen. 
#' To digitize with a standard 3-button (PC):
#' \enumerate{
#'  \item the RIGHT mouse button (primary) to select points to be digitized,
#'  \item the LEFT mouse button (secondary) is used to rotate mesh, 
#'  \item the mouse SCROLLER (third/middle) is used to zoom in and out.
#' }
#' NOTE: Digitizing functions on MACINTOSH computers using a standard 3-button mice works as specified. Macs using platform 
#' specific single button mice, XQuartz must be configured: go to Preferences > Input > tick "Emulate three button mouse":
#' \enumerate{
#'  \item press button to rotate 3D mesh,
#'  \item press button while pressing COMMAND key to select vertex to be used as a landmark,
#'  \item press button while pressing OPTION key to adjust mesh perspective.
#'  \item the mouse SCROLLER or trackpad two finger scroll is used to zoom in an out.
#'  }
#' NOTE: there is no pan (translate) functionality in rgl library for all platforms at this time.
#' }
#' \subsection{AUTO mode}{ 
#' The function as described above (for interactive mode) calls \code{\link{digit.fixed}}, prompting the user to select fixed landmarks
#' in the rgl window. However if the user has digitized these fixed landmark elsewhere (e.g., in other software), then the input for
#' parameter 'fixed' can be a p-x-k matrix of 3D coordinates. In this case, the function the function will automatically use these
#' landmarks and fit the template of sliding semilandmarks.
#' }
#' @param spec Name of surface file, as either an object of class shape3d/mesh3d, or matrix of three-dimensional vertex coordinates.
#' @param fixed numeric Either: a single value designating the number of fixed template landmarks to be selected by \code{\link{digit.fixed}}, OR a p-x-k matrix of 3D coordinates collected previously
#' @param ptsize numeric: Size to plot the mesh points (vertices), e.g. 0.1 for dense meshes, 3 for sparse meshes
#' @param center Logical Whether the object 'spec' should be centered prior to digitizing (default {center=TRUE})
#' @seealso \code{\link{buildtemplate}}
#' @seealso \code{\link{read.ply}} 
#' @seealso \code{\link{digit.fixed}} 
#' @return Function writes to the working directory an NTS file with the name of the specimen and .nts suffix containing the landmark coordinates.
