Tooltable plugin

In order to enable the tooltable plugin, you need to enable it in your VCPs YAML file.

Sample configuration:

data_plugins:
  tooltable:
    kwargs:
      # specify the columns that should be read and writen to the
      # tooltable file. To use all columns set to: TPXYZABCUVWDIJQR
      columns: PTDZR
      # specify text to be added before the tool table data
      file_header_template: |

        QtPyVCP will preserve comments before the opening semicolon.
