Documented in filter_pixel

#' Filter data cube pixels by a user-defined predicate on band values
#' 
#' Create a proxy data cube, which evaluates a predicate over all pixels of a data cube. For all pixels that fulfill the predicate, the original
#' band values are returned. Other pixels are simply filled with NANs. The predicate may access band values by name.
#'
#' @param cube source data cube
#' @param pred predicate to be evaluated over all pixels
#' @return a proxy data cube object
#' @details gdalcubes uses and extends the \href{https://github.com/codeplea/tinyexpr}{tinyexpr library} to evaluate expressions in C / C++, you can look at the \href{https://github.com/codeplea/tinyexpr#functions-supported}{library documentation}
#' to see what kind of expressions you can execute. Pixel band values can be accessed by name.
#' @examples 
#' # create image collection from example Landsat data only 
#' # if not already done in other examples
