       optionSaveState - saves the option state to memory


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

       void optionSaveState(tOptions* pOpts);


       This  routine will allocate enough memory to save the current option processing state.  If
       this routine has been called before, that memory will be reused.  You may  only  save  one
       copy  of  the option state.  This routine may be called before optionProcess(3AO).  If you
       do call it before the first call to optionProcess, then you may also change  the  contents
       of argc/argv after you call optionRestore(3AO)

       In fact, more strongly put: it is safest to only use this function before having processed
       any options.  In particular, the saving and restoring  of  stacked  string  arguments  and
       hierarchical values is disabled.  The values are not saved.

       pOpts  program options descriptor


       If  it  fails  to  allocate  the  memory,  it  will  print  a  message to stderr and exit.
       Otherwise, it will always succeed.
