#' @title See formula(s) used for EJSCREEN variable(s)
#'
#' @description Just a convenient way to look at the formula(s) used to create one or more variables in EJSCREEN.
#' @param fieldname Optional, character vector specifying variable(s) in \code{ejscreenformulas$Rfieldname}, default is all \code{ejscreenformulas$Rfieldname} that are not NA values.
#' @param decreasing Optional, passed to \code{\link{sort}} except default is not sorted (just the order that exists in \code{\link{ejscreenformulas}})
#' @param recursive Optional, default is FALSE. If TRUE, returns also returns formula(s) for variable(s) found on right hand side of formula(s), i.e. those used to create specified variable(s)
#' @param dropNA Be careful: Optional, default is TRUE. If TRUE, returns only formulas that are not NA values. If FALSE, and decreasing is not specified (sorting drops NA values here), returns vector the same length as \code{fieldname} (unless \code{recursive = TRUE})
#' @return Character vector of the formula(s) used to calculate the specified variable, in \code{ejscreenformulas}
#' @examples
#'   ejformula('VSI.eo')
#'   ejformula(c('pctmin', 'pctlowinc'))
#'   ejformula('VSI.eo', recursive = TRUE)
#'   ejformula()
