The OPTIONS instruction is used to pass special requests to the language processor.

The expression is evaluated, and individual words in the result that are meaningful to the language processor will be obeyed. Optiions might control how the interpreter optimizes code, enforces standards, enables implementation-dependent features, etc.). Unrecognized words in the result are ignored, since they are assumed to be instructions for a different language processor.

Open Object Rexx does not recognize any option keywords.
