#' Get or add format options
#' Format options are tmap options that are shape dependent. With \code{tmap_format()} the predefined formats can be retrieved. The values for a specific format can be retrieved with \code{tmap_format(format)}, where format is the name of the format. The function \code{tmap_format_add} is used to add a format.
#' @param format name of the format. Run \code{tmap_format()} to see the choices.
#' @return the function \code{tmap_format()} returns the names of the available formats. When \code{format} is defined, it returns the option list corresponding the that format.
#' @seealso \code{\link{tm_layout}} for predefined styles, \code{\link{tmap_style_catalogue}} to create a style catalogue of all available styles, and \code{\link{tmap_options}} for tmap options.
#' @example ./examples/tmap_format.R
