Ah, now I see. Please scroll to the end of the document
after this section
"Preparing to use the Lit Window Library".
The cfg object accesses the Settings object or any other object through
a 'data abstraction layer', a type of reflection mechanism. The
"Preparing to use..." section shows you what you have to do for the
Settings class definition so that the operator >> knows what to do.
A 'data adapter' is basically a map<string, accessor>, mapping member
variables of a class to get/set functions.

No, it does not parse header files. You have to include a small
declaration for the data adapter. See the "Preparing..." text part of
the document above.

Thanks a lot, I am looking forward to your comments.
