Defines functions haplo_logfile

Documented in haplo_logfile

#' Generate the logfile of a haplotype analysis
#' This function inspects the output of the \code{\link{haplo_selection}} function
#' in order to generate a logfile summarizing details of the analysis. The logfile
#' can be output to a file (defaults to "Log.txt") or to optionally to standard
#' output.
#' The logfile is divided into 4 parts :
#' \itemize{
#' \item{Analysis parameters} {A description of the input files and parameters that
#'   were used for the analysis.}
#' \item{Marker clustering and filtering results} {A description of the number of
#'   markers that were kept following different filtering steps.}
#' \item{Selecting marker pairs in LD across gene} {Data regarding the final set
#'   of markers kept for haplotype generation.}
#' \item{Haplotype assignment} {A summary of the number of different haplotypes
#'   generated and the number of individuals unambiguously assigned to each
#'   haplotype, plus the number of individuals that could not be unambiguously
#'   assigned to a haplotype due to missing data.}
#' }
#' @param results A list containing a variable number of items among the following :
#'   \code{Parameters}, \code{Kinship}, \code{Structure}, \code{All_markers},
#'   \code{Filtered_markers}, \code{Clustered_markers}, \code{Selected_clusters},
#'   \code{Selected_markers}, \code{Haplotypes}. The precise output of the function
#'   will depend on the number of these elements given as input. The function
#'   will throw an error if any element other than those aforementioned is present
#'   in the input list.
#' @param filename A character. The name of the file to which the logfile should
#'   be written. Ignored if \code{to_file} is FALSE.
#' @param to_file A logical. Should the output be written to file? Defaults to
#'   TRUE, otherwise output is directed to standard output.
#' @return NULL, invisibly. This function is called for its side effect of writing
#'   to file or to standard output.
