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
	      Specifies	a UNO-URL connect-string  to  create  a	 UNO  acceptor
	      through which other programs can connect to access the API. Note
	      that API access allows execution	of  arbitrary  commands.   The
	      syntax   of   a	UNO-URL	  connect-string  is:  uno:connection-
	      type,params;protocol-name,params;ObjectName

       --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.
