Small helper that checks if a model is a generalized additive
model.

## Arguments

- x
A model object.

## Value

A logical, `TRUE`

if `x`

is a generalized additive model
*and* has smooth-terms

## Note

This function only returns `TRUE`

when the model inherits from a
typical GAM model class *and* when smooth terms are present in the model
formula. If model has no smooth terms or is not from a typical gam class,
`FALSE`

is returned.

## Examples

```
if (require("mgcv")) {
data(iris)
model1 <- lm(Petal.Length ~ Petal.Width + Sepal.Length, data = iris)
model2 <- gam(Petal.Length ~ Petal.Width + s(Sepal.Length), data = iris)
is_gam_model(model1)
is_gam_model(model2)
}
#> [1] TRUE
```
