    I'm looking for some informations how the exchanges manage orders in spreads or butterflies. For example let's take the CBOE and their options.
    Is an order in a butterfly linked with the orderbook of the three options and how do you get a fill and how does the CBOE system manage these trades?
    Unfortunately I couldn't find good informations about that topic.

    Thanks and regards
