Options are instructions to translators on how a particular definition should be regarded. Any translator can make use of any option. Options can take a list of string arguments much like the options and arguments to a program. If none are specified, the option is considered to be a Boolean value that is true if specified.

Every vital definition in RIDDL allows a technology option that takes any number of string arguments. These can specify the technologies intended for the implementation. This idea was adapted from a similar idea in Simon Brown’s C4 Model For Software Architecture

Other options are specific to the kind of vital definition. See the vital definition’s page for details on the options they take. Non-vital definitions do not allow options.
