Defines functions Levels

Documented in Levels

# Obtain the code and name for the desired levels of a classification.
# Input parameters: input level (level at which the classification is), desired levels, file with the classification as retrieved from KLASS.
#' Title
#' @param input_level Classification level from the original dataset.
#' @param output_level Classification level for which the codes and names are desired by the user.
#' @param klass_data Classification file retrieved from KLASS.
#' @return Data frame with the input and extra desired classification levels. Includes codes and names for each level.
