DESCRIPTION
       LibreOffice (LO for short)  is  a  multi-platform  office  productivity
       suite.	It  was	 derived from OpenOffice.org 3.3 Beta on September 28,
       2010.

       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 mod-
       ule:

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

OPTIONS
       --accept=accept-string
	      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 out-
       put_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.

	      Examples:

	      --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.

       --global
	      Starts with a new	Global document.

       --headless
	      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.

       --help|-h|-?
	      Lists LibreOffice	command	line parameters.

       --impress
	      Starts with a new	Impress	document.

       --invisible
	      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.

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

       --math Starts with a new	Math document.

       --minimized
	      Keeps the	splash screen minimized.

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

       --nodefault
	      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	OpenOffice.org
	      2.0.0.

       --nolockcheck
	      Disables the check for remote instances using the	installation.

       --nologo
	      Disables the splash screen at program start.

       --norestore
	      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.

       --nosplash
	      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]
       file...
	      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.

	      Examples:

	      --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
	      nasty_lowres_printer.

       --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 quo-
	      tation 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.

       --unaccept=accept-string
	      Closes an	acceptor that was created with --accept	option.

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

       --terminate_after_init
	      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.

       --writer
	      Starts with a new	Writer document.
