Document MGED's 'saveview' command options

completed by: Peter Amidon

mentors: Sean

BRL-CAD's primary geometry editor (MGED) provides hundreds of commands. Two of those commands are the savewview and loadview commands that write current view settings out to a text file and read them back in. The saveview command provides -e -i -l and -o options, but they are not documented.

This task involves writing documentation for those missing options. Consult the source code to see what they do and add the corresponding sections into our Docbook XML doc just like we do in our other documentation files. Test compilation to make sure your XML syntax is correct.
