### 5.2. array—Extending the tabular environments

Over the years several extensions have been made to the tabular environment family, as described in the LaTeX Manual. This section explores the added functionality of the array package (developed by Frank Mittelbach, with contributions from David Carlisle). Many of the packages described later in the chapter build on the functionality of the array package so as to extend or adapt the tabular environment.

Table 5.2 shows the new options available in the cols preamble declaration of the environments in the tabular family.

#### 5.2.1. Examples of preamble commands

If you would like to use a special font, such as \bfseries in a flush left column, you can write >{\bfseries}l. You no longer have to start every entry of the column with \bfseries.
