#' Process Metropolis output from extreme value model fitting to discard

#' 
#' Process observations from Metropolis fitting of extreme value models, to
#' thin the output and discard observations from burn-in period.

#' @aliases thinAndBurn thinAndBurn.evmSim
#' @usage \method{thinAndBurn}{evmSim}(object, burn, thin)
#' @param object Object of class 'evmSim' as returned by \code{evm} called with
#' \code{method="simulate"}.
#' @param thin \code{thin} or its reciprocal must be a positive integer.  If
#' integer valued, this specifies the frequency of observations from the
#' simulated Markov Chain which will be retained.  If specified as a
#' proportion, this is the proportion of values which will be retained. For no
#' thinning use \code{thin=1}.
#' @param burn The number of observations from the simulated Markov Chain to be
#' discarded as burn-in. Must be a non-negative integer, for no burn-in use
#' \code{burn=0}.
#' @return Object of class \code{evmSim}.  See Value returned by
#' \code{\link{evm}} using \code{method = "simulate"} for details.
#' 
#' Note that the original chain is not discarded when this function is called:
#' \code{thinAndBurn} can be called recursively on the original object with
#' different values of \code{burn} and \code{thin} without the object getting
#' progressively smaller!
