#' A collection of functions for the analysis of survival data. These
#' extend the methods already available in \code{package:survival}.
#' \cr
#' The intent is to generate a workspace for some of the common tasks
#' arising in survival analysis.
#'  \cr \cr
#' There are references in many of the functions to the textbooks:

#' \subsection{Notes for developers}{
#'  \itemize{
#'   \item This package should be regarded as 'in development' until
#' release 1.0, meaning that there may be changes to certain function
#' names and parameters, although I will try to keep this to a minimum.
#' As such it is recommended that other packages do \emph{not} depend on or import from this
#' one until at least version 1.0.
#'  \item Naming tends to follow the \strong{camelCase} convention; 
#'   variables within functions are typically alphanumeric e.g. \code{a1 <- 1}.
#'  }
