Changing genetic operators via command-line arguments

I'm starting fresh with GAlib, and have one - actually two, but related -

1. The standard distribution does not include the specification of the
actual operators (of initialization, crossover, mutation) using
command-line options (like in page 18 of Document Rev B), does it?

2. What would be the best way for a genetic algorithm to print out the
genetic operators it is using (in a similar way as given by
ga.parameters())? Maybe programming a ga.operators()?

I thank you in advance for any suggestion.
