Defines functions nb_outliers

Documented in nb_outliers

#' Return the number of outliers in the dataset taken in entry and according the coefficient.
#' This function is based on boxplot.stat function
#' @param data A dataframe containing the edr10 or ed50
#' @param var_grp A group variable telling how counts have to be done (ie.by Class)
#' @param coef this determines how far the plot ‘whiskers’ extend out from the
#' box. If coef is positive, the whiskers extend to the most extreme data point
#' which is no more than coef times the length of the box away from the box.
#' A value of zero causes the whiskers to extend to the data extremes (and no outliers be returned).

#' @examples
#'  nb_outliers(ciprKP0.Ac,Class,coef)
#' @return the number of Outliers according the chosen coefficient
#' @export
