Function to read the file or the text; NULL if no matching function was found

Examples

 file = btcore_file("IrisCSV.TXT")
 # Get function to read this file. Returns \code{\link{read_iris_csv}}.
 read_fun = breathtest_read_function(file)
 str(read_fun(file))
 # or, simple (returns a list!)
 str(read_any_breathtest(file), 1 )
