       Bobcat - Overview of classes in the Bobcat library


       The  classes  of  the  Bobcat  library  may  be  used  after  including
       bobcat/classname in sources.

       All classes and other elements are defined in the  FBB  namespace.  For
       some  classes  manipulators are available, which are defined in the FBB
       namespace. An overview of all manipulators defined in the FBB namespace
       is provided by man -e bobcat manipulators.

       The following classes are available:

       FBB::Align: Specifies Table column and element alignments.
       (Manpage: man -e bobcat align)

       FBB::Arg:  Interfaces  the  command line arguments, allowing for short-
       and long options. The class is implemented as a Singleton.

       FBB::AutoPtr: A template class  implementing  the  std::auto_ptr  class
