       optionLoadLine - process a string for an option name and value


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

       void optionLoadLine(tOptions * opts, char const * line);


       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) option.

       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.  The caller need not skip over any introductory
       hyphens.  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.

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