Defines functions SSgetMCMC

Documented in SSgetMCMC

#' Read MCMC output.
#' Reads the MCMC output (in the posteriors.sso and derived_posteriors.sso
#' files) from one or more models.
#' @param dir A string (or vector of strings) of the directory (or directories)
#' with MCMC output.
#' @param verbose TRUE/FALSE switch to get more or less information about the
#' progress of the function.
#' @param writecsv Write key parameters and certainty nuisance quantities to a
#' CSV file.
#' @param csv1 First CSV file for key parameters.
#' @param csv2 Second CSV file for nuisance quantities.
#' @param keystrings Vector of strings that partially match parameter names to
#' write to the file csv1. This file intended to feed into
#' \code{\link{mcmc.out}}.
#' @param nuisancestrings Vector of strings that partially match derived
#' quantity names to write to the file csv2. This file intended to feed into
#' \code{\link{mcmc.nuisance}}.
#' @param modelnames Either "default" or a vector of names to use in naming
#' elements of list that is output by the function. Default is "model1",
#' "model2", etc.
#' @param burnin Optional burn-in value to apply on top of the option in the
#' starter file.
#' @param thin Optional thinning value to apply on top of the option in the
#' starter file and in the \code{-mcsave} runtime command.
