#' Main argument validator
#'
#' Checks if the arguments passed to \code{\link{metaseqr}} are valid and throws
#' a warning about the invalid ones (which are ignored anyway because of the
#' \code{...} in \code{\link{metaseqr}}. However, for this reason this function
#' is useful as some important parameter faults might go unnoticed in the beginning
#' and cause a failure afterwards. Internal use.
#' 
#' @param main.args a list of parameters with which metaseqr is called (essentially,
#' the output of \code{\link{match.call}}.

#' Text argument validator
#'
#' Checks if one or more given textual argument(s) is/are member(s) of a list of 
#' correct arguments. It's a more package-specific function similar to 
#' \code{\link{match.arg}}. Mostly for internal use.
#' 
#' @param arg.name the name of the argument that is checked (for display purposes).
#' @param arg.value the value(s) of the argument to be checked.
#' @param arg.list a vector of valid argument values for \code{arg.value} to be 
#' matched against.
#' @param multiarg a logical scalar indicating whether \code{arg.name} accepts 
#' multiple arguments or not. In that case, all of the values in \code{arg.value} 
#' are checked against \code{arg.list}.

#' Numeric argument validator
#'
#' Checks if one or more given numeric argument(s) satisfy several rules concerning 
#' numeric arguments, e.g. proper bounds or proper format (e.g. it must be a number 
#' and not a character). Mostly for internal use.
#' 
#' @param arg.name the name of the argument that is checked (for display purposes).
#' @param arg.value the value(s) of the argument to be checked.
#' @param arg.type either the string \code{"numeric"} to denote generic double-like 
#' R numerics or \code{"integer"} for integer values.
#' @param arg.bounds a numeric or a vector with 2 elements, restraining 
#' \code{arg.value} to be within the bounds defined by the input vector or e.g. 
#' larger (smaller) than the numeric value. See examples.
#' @param direction a string denoting to which direction the \code{arg.value} 
#' should be compared with \code{arg.bounds}. For example, \code{"both"} should 
#' be given with a two element vector against which, \code{arg.value} will be 
#' checked to see whether it is smaller than the low boundary or larger than the 
#' higher boundary. In that case, the function will throw an error. The direction 
#' parameter can be one of: \code{"both"} (described above), \code{"botheq"} (as 
#' above, but the \code{arg.val} is also checked for equality -closed intervals), 
#' \code{"gt"} or \code{"gte"} (check whether \code{arg.val} is smaller or smaller 
#' than or equal to the first value of \code{arg.bounds}), \code{"lt"} or \code{"lte"} 
#' (check whether \code{arg.val} is larger or larger than or equal to the first 
#' value of \code{arg.bounds}).
