reader: Suite of Functions to Flexibly Read Data from Files

A set of functions to simplify reading data from files. The main function, reader(), should read most common R datafile types without needing any parameters except the filename. Other functions provide simple ways of handling file paths and extensions, and automatically detecting file format and structure.
