#################################################################################
## geoConvert function:
## Converts GEO accessions from one type to one or more other types
## geoConvert table is being queried for conversions
## geoConvert table schema: from_acc TEXT,to_acc TEXT,to_type TEXT

## Usage of geoConvert:
## arguments: geoConvert (in_list, out_type = c('gse','gpl','gsm','gds','sMatrix'),sqlite_db_name='GEOmetadb.sqlite')
## in_list: character vector of GEO accessions - only one type allowed
## valid input type: anyone of 'gse','gpl','gsm' and 'gds'
## valid output types: any of c('gse','gpl','gsm', 'gds', 'sMatrix')
## sqlite_db_name: the GEO SQLite database file name and default is 'GEOmetadb.sqlite'

## Conversion types:
## 'gse' -> any of c('gpl','gsm', 'gds', 'sMatrix')
## 'gpl' -> any of c('gse','gsm', 'gds', 'sMatrix')
## 'gsm' -> any of c('gse','gpl')
## 'gds' -> any of c('gse','gpl')

## Example of geoConvert:
# in_list <- c("GPL97","GPL96");
# out_type <- c('gse','gpl','gsm','gds', 'sMatrix')
# sqlite_db_name = 'geodb_030608.sqlite'
# output <- geoConvert (sqlite_db_name, in_list, out_type , )

## Updates:
# Update1: reorder function arguments
# Update2: added valid_in_type <- c('gse','gpl','gsm','gds')
# Update3: modified the validation messages
# Update4: added SeriesMatrix as output
