md4r: Markdown Parser Implemented using the 'MD4C' Library

Provides an R wrapper for the 'MD4C' (Markdown for 'C') library. Functions exist for parsing markdown ('CommonMark' compliant) along with support for other common markdown extensions (e.g. GitHub flavored markdown, 'LaTeX' equation support, etc.). The package also provides a number of higher level functions for exploring and manipulating markdown abstract syntax trees as well as translating and displaying the documents.
