Detailed Description

template<class T>
class FlexibleTable< T >

FlexibleTable<T> is intended for reading a table of columnar data from a file.

FlexibleTable<T> is optimized for fault-tolerance and flexibility -- not for performance. Data is stored internally using STL structures, specifically a std::list of std::vector<T>. Thus, the FlexibleTable should not be used for data access. In fact, it provides no access to individual data elements. Instead, once the data is read in from a file using the ReadTable() method, it should be copied into a matrixview<T> object using CopyToData(). Alternatively, it can be output to a stream using the print() method. Before output, the FlexibleTable can be truncated using TruncateLength() and TruncateWidth(), or re-initialized using Clear().
