DETAILS

Show_System_Options() is just the complement of Define_System_Options() ; it returns a list of all the current System Option settings. It's most often used when you want to set an option temporarily—you would "show" the current settings, set up the temporary option, and after a bit put the original settings back into effect.
Show_One_System_Option() will return the current setting for one particular system option, in the style of the "Show One Attribute" routines. For example,

                Show_One_System_Option ("warnings", value)
would set value to either "on" or "off".
