The options take the arguments with values corresponding to the ones would-be-put into the variables. The first non-option argument to the dynamic loader is the binary to be run, the rest is passed as arguments to the started program. In contrast to the variables these options are not automatically inherited by possible child processes and exhibit the correct and safe behaviour. The variables are atill respected if the corresponding option is not present. Rune
