Documented in rmw_find_breakpoints

#' Function to detect breakpoints in a data frame using a linear regression 
#' based approach.
#' 
#' \code{rmw_find_breakpoints} will generally be applied to a data frame after
#' \code{\link{rmw_normalise}}. \code{rmw_find_breakpoints} is rather slow.
#' 
#' @author Stuart K. Grange
#' 
#' @param df Tibble from \code{\link{rmw_normalise}} to detect breakpoints 
#' in. 
#' 
#' @param h Minimal segment size either given as fraction relative to the sample 
#' size or as an integer giving the minimal number of observations in each 
#' segment.
#' 
#' @param n Number of breaks to detect. Default is maximum number allowed by
#' \code{h}. 
#' 
#' @return Tibble with a \code{date} variable indicating where the breakpoints 
#' are. 
#' 
#' @examples 
#' 
#' # Test for breakpoints in an example normalised time series
#' data_breakpoints <- rmw_find_breakpoints(data_london_normalised)
