This is used by
tidem() to permit users to specify constituent names in either
the T-TIDE convention (see Pawlowicz et al. 2002) or Foreman convention
(see Foreman (1978). There are only two such instances:
"MS", which gets translated to
which gets translated to
tidemConstituentNameFix(names, debug = 1)
a vector of character values, holding constituent names
an integer controlling warnings. If this is zero, then no warnings are issued during processing; otherwise, as is the default, warnings are issued for each conversion that is required.
A vector of character values of tidal constituent names, in the Foreman naming convention.
