Defines functions elimCloseCoord

Documented in elimCloseCoord

#' Eliminate close (overlapping) points (in x & y space)
#' \code{elimCloseCoord} reduces number of rows in 'dat' by eliminating lines where x & y coordinates (columns of matrix '\code{dat}' defined by '\code{useCol}') are identical (overlay points) or very close.
#' The stringency for 'close' values may be fine-tuned using \code{nDig}), this function uses internally \code{\link{firstOfRepeated}}.
#' @param dat matrix (or data.frame) with main numeric input
#' @param useCol (numeric) index for numeric columns of 'dat' to use/consider
#' @param elimIdentOnly (logical) if TRUE, eliminate real duplicated points only (ie identical values only)
#' @param refine (numeric) allows increasing stringency even further  (higher 'refine' .. more lines considered equal)
#' @param nDig (integer) number of significant digits used for rounding, if two 'similar' values are identical after this rounding the second will be eliminated. 
#' @param silent (logical) suppress messages
#' @param callFrom (character) allows easier tracking of message(s) produced
#' @return resultant matrix/data.frame
#' @seealso \code{\link{findCloseMatch}}, \code{\link{firstOfRepeated}}
