Please can you help us create a sub-format of Tabular that can take column headers from a specified line (perhaps denotes by “#”)? As we do not currently understand the syntax for the class definition in the python script, we’d like to check with you that it is possible before investing a lot of time into it.
In an informal chat with one of your team, as well as reading old posts with a similar probelm to solve, we were advised that creating a sub-format is the way forward, although I have not seen evidence that this was followed to completion. Could you please give us an example of code for a format definition where column headers are defined dynamically by a commented line? Or show us where the documentation for the appropriate syntax can be found?
In addition, this format would have to be able to handle a varying range of column numbers. And error handling for the absence of this header line.
Would you like more information, or would you advise that creating such a sub-format is not currently possible?
