freesurfer: Wrapper Functions for 'Freesurfer'

Wrapper functions that interface with 'Freesurfer' <>, a powerful and commonly-used 'neuroimaging' software, using system commands. The goal is to be able to interface with 'Freesurfer' completely in R, where you pass R objects of class 'nifti', implemented by package 'oro.nifti', and the function executes an 'Freesurfer' command and returns an R object of class 'nifti' or necessary output.
