Defines functions sort.table

Documented in sort.table

#' sort.table
#'
#' This function allows to sort the input contingency table according to the score of row and column categories on the selected Correspondence Analysis dimension.
#' Two plots are returned, displaying the sorted contingency table. Note that the two plots are the same, except for the fact that one is the transposed version of the other. A battleship plot for the seriated table is also provided.
#' Two tab delimited .txt files are also created in the R working directory, containing the sorted table and the sorted table converted into presence/absence data.
#' @param data: Dataframe containing the contingency table to be analysed.
#' @param dim: The dimensions (1st default) to be used to sort the contingency table (i.e., to perfom the seriation).
#' @param plot: logic value (TRUE/FALSE); if set to TRUE, two seriation plots (i.e., a Bertin plot) are returned, one the reverse of the other. FALSE is default.
#' @param battlshp: logic value (TRUE/FALSE); if set to TRUE, two 'battleship' plots are returned, one the reverse of the other. FALSE is default.

#' data("perfect_seriation"): load the dataset 'perfect_seriation'
#' sort.table (perfect_seriation,1): sort the contingency table (contained in the 'perfect_seriation' dataframe) according to the score of row and column categories on the 1 dimension of Correspondence Analysis.
#' sort.table (perfect_seriation,1, plot=TRUE, battlshp=TRUE): sort the contingency table (contained in the 'perfect_seriation' dataframe) according to the score of row and column categories on the 1 dimension of Correspondence Analysis. Seriation plots (Bertin plot) and battleship plots are also returned.
