blindreview: Enables Blind Review of Database

Randomly reassigns the group identifications to one of the variables of the database, say Treatment, and randomly reassigns the observation numbers of the dataset. Reorders the observations according to these new numbers. Centers each group of Treatment at the grand mean in order to further mask the treatment. An unmasking function is provided so that the user can identify the potential outliers in terms of their original values when blinding is no longer needed. It is suggested that a forward search procedure be performed on the masked data. Details of some forward search functions may be found in <>.
