Defines functions makef

Documented in makef

#' Make non-linear features
#' Internal function for making non-linear features.
#' @param x Input matrix, of dimension \code{nobs x nvars}; each row is
#' an observation vector.
#' @param r Vector of residuals.
#' @param df Degrees of freedom for the fit.
#' @param tol A tolerance for same-ness or uniqueness of the x values. To be
#' passed to the \code{smooth.spline()} function. Default is \code{0.01}.
#' @param removeLin If \code{TRUE} (default), removes the linear component from
#' the newly created non-linear features.
#' @return A list:
#' \item{f}{Non-linear features associated with the features in \code{x}.}
#' \item{spline_fit}{A list of the spline fits of the residual against each
#' feature. Useful for creating the non-linear features for new data.}
#' \item{lin_comp_fit}{If \code{removeLin = TRUE}, a list of coefficients for
#' simple linear regression of non-linear feature on original feature. Useful
#' for creating the non-linear features for new data.}
