# tcplCode2CASN: Convert chemical code to CAS Registry Number
#-------------------------------------------------------------------------------

#' @title Convert chemical code to CAS Registry Number
#' 
#' @description
#' \code{tcplCode2CASN} takes a code and converts it CAS Registry Number.
#' 
#' @param code Character of length 1, a chemical code
#' 
#' @details
#' The function checks for the validity of the CAS Registry Number. Also, 
#' the ToxCast data includes chemicals for which there is no CASRN. The 
#' convention for these chemicals is to give them a CASRN as NOCAS_chid; the
#' code for these compounds is CNOCASchid. The function handles the NOCAS 
#' compounds as they are stored in the database, as shown in the example below.
#' 
#' @examples
#' tcplCode2CASN("C80057")
#' tcplCode2CASN("C09812420") ## Invalid CASRN will give a warning
#' tcplCode2CASN("CNOCAS0015") ## The underscore is reinserted for NOCAS codes
#' 
#' @return A CAS Registry Number.
#' 
#' @export
