Documented in load2

#' Load RData file and return objects in it.
#'
#' @param file [\code{character(1)}]\cr
#'   File to load.
#' @param parts [\code{character}]\cr
#'   Elements in file to load.
#'   Default is all.
#' @param simplify [\code{logical(1)}]\cr
#'   If \code{TRUE}, a list is only returned if \code{parts} and the file contain both more
#'   than 1 element, otherwise the element is directly returned.
#'   Default is \code{TRUE}.
#' @param envir [\code{environment(1)}]\cr
#'   Assign objects to this environment.
#'   Default is not to assign.
#' @param impute [\code{ANY}]\cr
#'   If \code{file} does not exists, return \code{impute} instead.
#'   Default is missing which will result in an exception if \code{file} is not found.
#' @return Either a single object or a list.
#' @export
#' @examples
#' fn = tempfile()
#' save2(file = fn, a = 1, b = 2, c = 3)
#' load2(fn, parts = "a")
