#' @rdname AnnotationFilter

#' @description \code{AnnotationFilter} \emph{translates} a filter
#'     expression such as \code{~ gene_id == "BCL2"} into a filter object
#'     extending the \code{\link{AnnotationFilter}} class (in the example a
#'     \code{\link{GeneIdFilter}} object) or an
#'     \code{\link{AnnotationFilterList}} if the expression contains multiple
#'     conditions (see examples below). Filter expressions have to be written
#'     in the form \code{~ <field> <condition> <value>}, with \code{<field>}
#'     being the default field of the filter class (use the
#'     \code{supportedFilter} function to list all fields and filter classes),
#'     \code{<condition>} the logical expression and \code{<value>} the value
#'     for the filter.
#'
#' @details Filter expressions for the \code{AnnotationFilter} class have to be
#'     written as formulas, i.e. starting with a \code{~}.
#'
#' @note Translation of nested filter expressions using the
#'     \code{AnnotationFilter} function is not yet supported.
#' 
#' @param expr A filter expression, written as a \code{formula}, to be
#'     converted to an \code{AnnotationFilter} or \code{AnnotationFilterList}
#'     class. See below for examples.
#'
#' @return \code{AnnotationFilter} returns an
#'     \code{\link{AnnotationFilter}} or an \code{\link{AnnotationFilterList}}.
