Defines functions get.weights

Documented in get.weights

#' Extract propensity score weights.
#'
#' Extracts propensity score weights from a ps or mnps object.
#'
#' Weights for ATT are 1 for the treatment cases and p/(1-p) for the control cases. 
#' Weights for ATE are 1/p for the treatment cases and 1/(1-p) for the control cases.
#'
#' @param ps1 A `ps` or `mnps` object.
#' @param stop.method Indicates which set of weights to retrieve from the `ps` object.
#' @param estimand Indicates whether the weights are for the average treatment effect on
#'   the treated (ATT) or the average treatment effect on the population (ATE). By default,
#'   `get.weights` will use the estimand used to fit the `ps` object.
#' @param withSampW Whether to return weights with sample weights multiplied in, if they were
#'   provided in the original `ps` or `mnps` call. Default: `TRUE`.
#'
#' @return Returns a vector of weights.
#'
#' @seealso [ps], [mnps]
