Defines functions runMeasure

Documented in runMeasure

#' Run and Measure Code
#' Will export this once I the full pipeline works.
#' Run the serial code in the task graph and measure how long each expression
#' takes to run as well as the object sizes of each variable that can
#' possibly be transferred.
#' This does naive and biased timing since it doesn't account for the
#' overhead in evaluating a single expression. However, this is fine for
#' this application since the focus is on measuring statements that take at
#' least on the order of 1 second to run. 
#' @param code to be passed into \code{\link{inferGraph}}
#' @param graph object of class \code{TaskGraph}
#' @param envir environment to evaluate the code in
#' @param timer function that returns a timestamp.
#' @return graph object of class \code{MeasuredTaskGraph}
