#' Return a triangular matrix
#'
#' @description Returns the upper or lower triangle of a matrix.
#'
#'
#' @param x A matrix
#' @param diag logical. Include the diagonal? Default is false.
#' @param otherVal numeric or NA. what to make nonlower/upper values. \code{0} by
#'   default.
#' @param valuesOnly logical. Return only the lower/upper triangle values (including diag
#'   argument)
#'
#' @details This function returns the lower/upper triangle of a square matrix rather
#'   than just its indices (e.g. as lower.tri does). \code{otherVal} is only relevant
#'   if \code{valuesOnly} is \code{FALSE}.
#'
#' @seealso \code{\link[base]{lower.tri}},  \code{\link[base]{diag}},  \code{\link[base]{matrix}}
#'
#' @return A lower or upper triangular matrix, possibly with diagonal. If
#'   \code{valuesOnly} is \code{TRUE}, then only the vector of values are
#'   returned.
