  Option - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia
Most often the term "option" refers to a type of derivative which gives the holder of the option the right but not the obligation to purchase (a "call option") or sell (a "put option") a specified amount of a security within a specified time span.
Options are usually traded on a futures exchange where they are identified by option symbols.
European options and American options on stock and bonds are usually considered to be "plain vanilla." Asian options, lookback options, barrier options are often considered to be exotic, especially if the underlying instrument is more complex than simple equity or debt.

 Option (films) - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia
In the film industry, an option is a contractual agreement between a movie studio, a production company, or a producer (henceforth called the "producer") and a writer, in which the producer obtains the right to buy a screenplay from the writer, before a certain date.
This "setting up a deal" is usually a tedious process known as development hell, in which the producer must get the screenplay written (if the option was on a book), obtain informal agreements with the director, the major actors, the financiers, and the distributors, and get the screenplay polished to suit all participants.
Most option agreements specify the prices of additional extensions, should the producer be unable to put the movie together in the originally specified term, and choose to extend.

With option ARMs, the adjustment period is usually set to 1 month: the fully indexed rate may not change more than once every month based on the movement of the index.
Some option ARM loans, for a fee (or for an increase in your rate), contain a provision permitting you to increase the term of the loan from 30 to 40 years.

 CBOE - Equity Option Concepts
Options are contracts in which the terms of the contract are standardized and give the buyer the right, but not the obligation, to buy or sell a particular asset (e.g., the underlying stock) at a fixed price (the strike price) for a specific period of time (until expiration).
The seller of an option is obligated to perform according to the terms of the options contract-selling the stock at the contracted price (the strike price) for a call seller, or purchasing it for a put seller-if the option is exercised by the buyer.
In accordance with the standardized terms of their contracts, all options expire on a certain date, called the "expiration date." For conventional listed options, this can be up to nine months from the date the options are first listed for trading.

The argument to the option is a string of the form prefname:value, where prefname is the name of the preference (which is the same name that would appear in the preference file), and value is the value to which it should be set.
Note that the -z proto option is different - it doesn't cause statistics to be gathered and printed when the capture is complete, it modifies the regular packet summary output to include the values of fields specified with the option.
Therefore you must not use the -q option, as that option would suppress the printing of the regular packet summary output, and must also not use the -V option, as that would cause packet detail information rather than packet summary information to be printed.
