Defines functions superClassMethodName generate_class_methods

Documented in generate_class_methods

#' Provide a list of class methods.
#' @param class_methods list. A named list of functions corresponding to
#'   methods inherited from the inheritance chain.
#' @param class_name character. The name of the class these methods will
#'   belong to.
#' @param instance_methods list. Additional methods provided by the
#'   \code{methods} parameter to \code{setRefClass}.
#' @param field_names character. The names of the fields in the class.
#'   Used to verify fields are not getting incorrectly assigned with
#'   local (\code{<-}) instead of global (\code{<<-}) assignment.
#' @param return_all logical. Whether or not to return all methods.
#'   # TODO: (RK) What does this mean?
#' @return a named list.
