source/base/processoptions.cpp

but you might need to look also at the vfe (virtual front end),
implemented for your system (unix, windows ...), that's where main() is.

The vfe/ hierarchy is complex on its own. (their is a subpart for unix,
and another for windows)

Parsing options fills the memory... and later, getters are provided with
default if the memory is not filled for a property.
Properties are encoded on a 4 bytes id, that's the part VMS transfers
around. You will find them in source/backend/povmsgid.h :-)
