#' Output the results of a haplotype analysis to disk
#' This function takes an object returned by function \code{\link{haplo_selection}}
#' as input and extracts information from this object so as the make the
#' information easily interpretable by the user. The function directs the
#' output of essentially three elements : the analysis logfile, the variant
#' files (vcf or hapmap) containing the marker set at different steps of the
#' analysis, and various kinds of graphs
#' More control over the files output by this function can be obtained by
#' using the underlying functions : \code{\link{haplo_logfile}},
#' \code{\link{haplo_graphs}}, \code{\link{write_hapmap}}
#' @param results A list generated as output from the function  \code{\link{haplo_selection}}
#'   and thus containing the results of a haplotype analysis.
#' @param output_dir A list generated as output from the function  \code{\link{haplo_selection}}
#'   and thus containing the results of a haplotype analysis.
#' @param variant_files A character vector. The name of the list elements of
#'   \code{results} that should used to output the variant data to disk. Can
#'   be any of \code{All_markers}, \code{Filtered_markers}, \code{Clustered_markers},
#'   \code{Selected_clusters}, \code{Selected_markers}, \code{Haplotypes}.
#'   Defaults to the last three of these elements. If null, no variant file
#'   will be written to disk.
#' @param variant_format A character. The format to be used for writing
#'   variant files. Must be either "vcf" or "hapmap". Other formats are not
#'   supported and will result in an error.
#' @param graphs A list describing which graphical elements should be output.
#'   See \code{\link{haplo_graphs}} for more details.
#' @param logfile A character. The name of the file to which the logfile
#'   should be written. Defaults to "Log.txt". If \code{NULL}, no logfile
#'   is written.
#' @return \code{NULL}, invisibly. This function is called for its side
#'   effect of writing output.
