# The 'indicator' class holds indicator definitions

#' Define indicators for data
#' 
#' An indicator maps a data frame, or each record in a data frame to a number.
#' The purpose of this class is to store and apply expressions that define
#' indicators.
#' 
#' 
#' @param ... A comma-separated list of indicator definitions
#' @param .file (optional) A character vector of file locations

#### INDICATOR CLASS ----------------------------------------------------------

#' Store a set of rich indicator expressions
#'
#' \bold{This feature is currently experimental and may change in future versions}
#' 
#' @section Details:
#' An indicator stores a set of indicators. It is a child class of \code{\link{expressionset}} and
#' can be constructed with  \code{\link{indicator}}.
#'
#' @section Exported S4 methods for \code{validator}:
#'  \itemize{
#'  \item{Methods inherited from \code{\link{expressionset}}}
#'    \item{\code{\link{confront}}}
#'    \item{\code{\link{compare}}}
#' }

#' Combine two indicator objects

#' Add indicator values as columns to a data frame
#'
#' Compute and add externally defined indicators to data frame.
#' If necessary, values are recycled over records.
#'
#' @param dat \code{[data.frame]}
#' @param x   \code{[indicator]} or \code{[indication]} object. See examples.
#'
#' @return \code{dat} with extra columns defined by \code{x} attached.

#' @examples
#' ii <- indicator(
#'  hihi = 2*sqrt(height)
#'  , haha = log10(weight)
#'  , lulz = mean(height)
#'  , wo0t = median(weight)
#' )
