#' roxygen2 Format Data Sets
#'
#' This function generates basic roxygen framework for data sets that 
#' can be set to print to your package's main .R file.
#'
#' @param \ldots Package datasets.
#' @param file A connection, or a character string naming the file to 
#' print to. If "" (the default), dat4rox prints to the standard output 
#' connection, the console.
#' @param append append	logical. Only used if the argument file is the 
#' name of file (and not a connection or "|cmd"). If TRUE output will 
#' be appended to file; otherwise, it will overwrite the contents of file.  
#' This allows for appnding to the main package .R file.
#' @keywords roxygen, data
#' @export
#' @examples
#' \dontrun{
#' dat4rox(mtcars, CO2)                   #print only to console
#' dat4rox(mtcars, CO2, file = "new.txt") #print to new file
#' #print to package.R file
#' #dat4rox(mtcars, CO2, file = "qdap-package.R", append = TRUE)
