   LibreOffice (LO for short)  is  a  multi-platform  office  productivity
   suite.   It  was  derived from 3.3 Beta on September 28,

   libreoffice is a shell script that sets up the environment  and  passes
   the command line arguments to the soffice.bin binary.

   Alternatively,  the  following  helper  scripts  start  the  respective

   sbase, scalc, sdraw, simpress, smath, sofficerc, swriter


          Specify a UNO connect-string to create a  UNO  acceptor  through
          which other programs can connect to access the API.

   --base Starts the wizard for a new Base document.

   --calc Starts with a new Calc document.

   --convert-to    output_file_extension[:output_filter_name]    [--outdir
   output_dir] file...
          Batch converts files.  If --outdir is  not  specified  then  the
          current  working  directory  is used as the output directory for
          the converted files. It implies --headless.


          --convert-to pdf *.doc

          Converts all .doc files to PDFs.

          --convert-to pdf:writer_pdf_Export --outdir /home/user *.doc

          Converts all .doc files to PDFs using the settings in the Writer
          PDF export dialog and saving them in /home/user.

   --display display
          This option specifies the X server to use; see X(7)

   --draw Starts with a new Draw document.

          Starts with a new Global document.

          Starts  in  "headless  mode", which allows using the application
          without user a interface.

          This special mode can be used when the application is controlled
          by external clients via the API.

          It implies --invisible and strictly ignores any GUI environment.
          --quickstart does not work with this parameter.

          Lists LibreOffice command line parameters.

          Starts with a new Impress document.

          Starts in invisible mode.

          Neither the start-up logo nor the initial program window will be
          visible.   LO can be controlled and documents and dialogs can be
          opened via the API.

          When started with this parameter, it can only be quit using  the
          taskmanager (Windows) or the kill command (UNIX based systems).

          --quickstart does not work with this parameter.

          Force   an   input   filter   type  if  possible.   For  example
          --infilter="Calc Office Open XML" only

   --math Starts with a new Math document.

          Keeps the splash screen minimized.

   -n template...
          Creates the a new document from the given templates.

          Starts LO without creating a new document.  The  next  time  you
          start LO, the welcome screen is shown.

          It's  used  together  with --nologo by quick starters. Note that
          --quickstart has no longer been supported  since

          Disables the check for remote instances using the installation.

          Disables the splash screen at program start.

          Disables  restart  and file recovery after a system crash. It is
          possible that LO will try to restore a file  it  keeps  crashing
          on, if that happens --norestore is the only way to start LO.

          Disables the splash screen at program start.

   -o file...
          Opens the given files for editing, even templates.

          Without  -o  a template file would create a new document derived
          from that template.

   -p file...
          Prints the given files to the  default  printer  and  ends.  The
          splash screen does not appear.

          If  the  file  name contains spaces, then it must be enclosed in
          quotation marks.

   --print-to-file  [--printer-name  printer_name]  [--outdir  output_dir]
          Batch  print  files to file.  If --printer-name is not specified
          the default printer is used.  If --outdir is not specified  then
          the  current  working  directory is used as the output directory
          for the converted files.


          --print-to-file *.doc

          Prints all .doc files to the current working directory using the
          default printer.

          --print-to-file   --printer-name  nasty_lowres_printer  --outdir
          /home/user *.doc

          Prints  all  .doc  files  to  /home/user  directory  using   the

   --pt printername file...
          Prints  the given files to the printer printername and ends. The
          splash screen does not appear.

          If a file name contains spaces, then  it  must  be  enclosed  in
          quotation marks.

   --quickstart --quickstart=no
          Starts  LO  with  its  quick  starter.  --quickstart disable the
          quick starter.

          Does not work with --invisible or --headless.

   --show Impress file...
          Opens the given Impress files, starts the presentation and quits
          after they have finished.

          Closes an acceptor that was created with --accept option.

          Use --unaccept=all to close all open acceptors.

          Starts  LO  and terminates after it registers some UNO services.
          Doesn't show the splash during startup.

   --view file...
          Opens the given files read-only creating  a  temporary  copy  of
          them at $TMPDIR.

   --web  Starts with a new HTML document.

          Starts with a new Writer document.
