How do I lookup the symbols for the week SPX options? (reference: http://www.cboe.com/products/weeklys-options/available-weeklys)

I see the docs here:
http://www.iqfeed.net/dev/api/docs/OptionChainsviaTCPIP.cfm

And they describe this command:
CEO,[Symbol],[Puts/Calls],[Month Codes],[Near Months],[BinaryOptions],[Filter Type],[Filter Value One],[Filter Value Two],[RequestID]<CR><LF>
Request an Index or Equity Option Chain from IQFeed.

but the docs only refer to monthlies.

Thanks!

The weekly items are included in those returns. The expiration date is included in the symbol. Here is an example of symbols for a July request on GOOG.
