 \title{Tranlates path IDs to path names}
 \usage{
 get_path_names(metaginfo, names, maxchar = NULL)
 }
 \arguments{
 \item{metaginfo}{Pathways object}
 
 \item{names}{Character vector with the subpathway IDs to be translated}
 
 \item{maxchar}{Integer, describes the number of maximum characters to
 be shown. By default no filter is applied.}
 }
 \value{
 A character vector including the readable names of the
 subpathways IDs, in the same order as provided.
 }
 \description{
 Translates the subpathway IDs to readable and comprensible names.
 
 For effector subpathways, the names of the subpathways are encoded
 as "pathway: effector_protein", where "pathway" is the pathway to
 which the subpathway belongs and "effector_protein" is the name of
 the last node in the subpathway.
 
 For decomposed subpathways, the names of the subpathways are encoded
 as "pathway: receptor_protein - effector_protein", where "pathway" is
 the pathway to which the subpathway belongs, "receptor_protein" is the
 name of the initial node of the subpathway and "effector_protein" is
 the name of the last node in the subpathway.
