       optionLoadLine - process a string for an option name and value


       #include <your-opts.h>
       cc [...] -o outfile infile.c -lopts [...]

       void optionLoadLine(tOptions* pOpts, char const* pzLine);


       This is a client program callable routine for setting options from, for
       example, the contents of a file that they read in.  Only one option may
       appear  in  the  text.   It  will  be  treated as a normal (non-preset)

       When passed a pointer to the option struct and a string, it  will  find
       the  option  named  by the first token on the string and set the option
       argument to the remainder of the string.  The caller must NUL terminate
       the  string.   Any  embedded  new  lines will be included in the option
       argument.  If the input looks like one or more quoted strings, then the
       input  will  be  "cooked".   The  "cooking"  is identical to the string
       formation used in AutoGen definition files (@pxref{basic  expression}),
       except that you may not use backquotes.

       pOpts  program options descriptor

       pzLine NUL-terminated text


       Invalid  options  are  silently ignored.  Invalid option arguments will
       cause a warning to print, but the function should return.
