10.33. hist.cgi: foTableHeader(): Generate the table's running heads

This function generates the table-header element that appears at the top of each page of the table. There are two logical rows, each of which may be multiple physical rows. We use the virtual method Row.fo() to render these two logical rows; see Section 29, “class Row: Abstract class for logical rows” for that method's interface.

        (cbcHist is a lib.CbcHist instance) ->
          s  +:=  a table-header child representing the running heads
                  from cbcHist ]
