Supports the standard [ serialization options ]

If -colnames is specified, its argument is taken to be either a sequence of strings, or a single string which is "," seperated which specifieds the column names to be used.
if -header is specified then the first row of the fixed file is read and the values used as column names.

-colspecs is required. Its argument is a sequence or "," deliminted string of column specs. A column spec is either "start-end" or "start", where start and end are integer column positions starting at one. For example "1-3,5-6,7-9" or <[ "1-3" , "5-6" , "7-9" ]>
If the "-end" is omitted then the remainder of the line is used.
Column specs may overlap (e.g "1-10,5-12" )
