Documented in cm_df.transcript

#' Transcript With Word Number
#' 
#' Output a transcript with word  number/index above for easy input back into 
#' \href{http://trinker.github.com/qdap/}{qdap after coding.}
#' 
#' @param text.var The text variable.
#' @param grouping.var The grouping variables.  Default \code{NULL} generates 
#' one word list for all text.  Also takes a single grouping variable or a list 
#' of 1 or more grouping variables.
#' @param file A connection, or a character string naming the file to print to 
#' (e.g., .doc, .txt).
#' @param indent Number of spaces to indent.
#' @param width Width to output the file (defaults to 70; this is generally a 
#' good width and indent for a .docx file).
#' @param space An integer value denoting the vertical spacing between the 
#' \code{grouping.var} and the numbered text (allow more space for more coding 
#' room) in the output of a text file.
#' @param \ldots Other arguments passed to strip.
#' @return Returns a transcript by grouping variable with word number above each 
#' word.  This makes use with \code{\link[qdap]{cm_df2long}} transfer/usage 
#' easier because the researcher has coded on a transcript with the numeric word 
#' index already.
#' @note It is recommended that the researcher actually codes on the output 
#' from this file.  The codes can then be transferred to via a list.  If a file 
#' already exists \code{cm_df.transcript} will append to that file.
