OOo with arguments
For example can I do something like this:
writer --template MyTemplate
that the writer thats with MyTemplate?
I ask this since I need to link Thunderbird to a PIM (Personal information manager(Self Coded)) and link that to open Office.
So people can click a button in Thunderbird that opens the PIM were they can chose a Document type and that they can write the email in OOo. When they close OOo the PIM saves it in a temp dir and Copys it to the Email in Thunderbird. (Like the Windows program ACT!).
So I hope someone has some Documents about OOo for Arguments.
Well, thanks already.

Thanks. though -o doesnt do what I want.. :/
Stupid I didnt try -h I did try man..
Anywho I dont think OOo supports this automaticly.
I have to write something for OOo myself.
I think Im going to use the nologo thing and open File.
That file is then a TempBackup from a Specific Template.
And Im going to make OOo save every 5 seconds. Though that will Lag as hell I guess its the only way.
Unless someone got a better idea?
