#' @description
#' Returns maximum value of each row of a data.frame or matrix.
#' @param df Data.frame or matrix, required.
#' @param na.rm Logical value, optional, TRUE by default. Defines whether NA values should be removed first. Otherwise result will be NA when any NA is in the given vector.
#' @return Returns a vector of numbers of length equal to number of rows in df.
#' @template maxmin
#' @export rowMaxs

  # Value returned is vector, each element is max of a row of df
