Inside the package used, for which this option is meant, you should be able to find the answer...

I once used a construct like this:

\def\Ar{article}
\def\Pr{proc}
\def\Bk{book}
\def\Rp{report}
\def\Stil{\Bk}

\def\Pt{12pt}
\def\Pt{11pt}
\def\Pt{}

\documentclass[\Pt,twoside,a5paper,]{\Stil}

In the text body I then was able to set up the document as article, book, etc., i.e., I could add sections needed for that type of document.
