#' Removes the dimension of an object
#'
#' @param x An object with or without dimensions
#' 
#' @param ... Not used.
#'
#' @return The object with the dimension attribute removed.
#'
#' @details
#' This function does `attr(x, "dim") <- NULL`, which automatically also does
#' `attr(x, "dimnames") <- NULL`.
#' However, other attributes such as names attributes are preserved,
#' which is not the case if one do `dim(x) <- NULL`.
