Defines functions getBins

Documented in getBins

#' getBins
#' @details Get uniformly-sized bins of specified width
#' This is a helper function used to generate binned data for \code{plotOnIdeo()}. It takes the chromosome-wide extents from \emph{ideo}, which is essentially the \emph{cytoBandIdeo} table from UCSC browser with the header as the first row. A use case is to generate bins using this function and supply the output to \code{avgByBin()} to bin the data.
#' @usage getBins(chroms, ideo, binLim = NULL, stepSize)
#' @param chroms (character) chromosomes to generate bins for
#' @param ideo (data.frame) ideogram table as generated by \code{getIdeo()}. See that function for details. 
#' @param binLim}{(numeric, length 2) [start, end] of genomic range to generate bins for. A value of NULL results in binning of entire chromosome
#' @param stepSize (integer) bin size in bases
#' @examples ideo_hg19 <- getIdeo("hg19")
#' chrom_bins <- getBins(c("chr1","chr2","chrX"), ideo_hg19,stepSize=5*100*1000)
#' @return (GRanges) bin ranges in 1-base coordinates
#' @seealso \code{getIdeo()},\code{avgByBin()}
#' @export
