This is a redesign and complete overhaul of the R package. Existing code that uses functions of the package cannot be expected to continue to run without modifications. The major changes (compared to 2.x) are:
Classes: Most functions now produce a classed object.
This makes it easier to prevent an erroneous use of functions.
Ids and names: All functions now rely only on character ids. If one needs character
names for plotting and visualisation, they can be inserted later using characterNames(),
with a controlled formatting.
Data files now include stage directions and character mentions, and functions can process them
