#' @title Extract narrow regions and peaks from a narrrowPeak file
#'
#' @description Read a narrowPeak file and extract the narrow regions and/or
#' the peaks, as specified by used. The narrowPeak file must fit the
#' UCSC specifications. See
#' \url{https://genome.ucsc.edu/FAQ/FAQformat.html#format12} for more
#' details. The file can have one or many header lines. However, the
#' total number of header lines must be inferior to 250 lines.
#'
#' @param file_path the name of the file.
#' @param extractRegions a \code{logical} indicating if the narrow regions must
#' be extracted. If \code{TRUE}, a \code{GRanges} containing the
#' narrow regions will be returned. Otherwise, \code{NULL} is
#' returned. Default = \code{TRUE}.
#' @param extractPeaks a \code{logical} indicating if the peaks must
#' be extracted. If \code{TRUE}, a \code{GRanges} containing the peaks
#' will be returned. Otherwise, \code{NULL} is
#' returned. Default = \code{TRUE}.
#'
#' @return a \code{list} containing 2 entries:
#' \itemize{
#' \item narrowPeak a {\code{GRanges}} containing
#' the narrow regions extracted from the file. {\code{NULL}} when
#' not needed by user.
#' \item peak a {\code{GRanges}} containing
#' the peaks extracted from the file. {\code{NULL}} when not
#' }

#' ## Read file to extract peaks and regions
#' data <- readNarrowPeakFile(test_narrowPeak, extractRegions = TRUE,
#'             extractPeaks = TRUE)
#'
#' ## To access peak data (GRanges format)
#' head(data$peak)
#'
#' ## To access region data (GRanges format)
#' head(data$narrowPeak)
