Defines functions rename.replicates

Documented in rename.replicates

#' Rename (renumber) replicate folders within a scenario
#' This function replaces the numbers between square brackets at the end of the
#' folder names of replicates within one scenario with the numbers provided in
#' \code{suffix}
#' \code{rename.replicates} can process one scenario at the time. Processing of
#' multiple scenarios with the same suffix should be achieved using a loop (e.g.
#' lapply). \code{suffix} should be of the same length as the number of
#' replicates.
#' \bold{Note} that the order in which the original folder names are replaced
#' may not be progressive. For example, normally the replicate '10' is renamed
#' after replicate '1' and before '2'. Also, note that the run number stored in
#' census files or other outputs is not changed.
#' @inheritParams collate.census
#' @param scenario The scenario whose replicates need to be renamed
#' @param suffix An integer vector to rename the replicates
#' @importFrom tcltk tk_choose.dir
#' @export
