To see available command line options on a unix-like system:

   $ squeak squeak.image -- -h
   DoItFirst image arguments:
       --doit argumentlist "evaluate each argument as a doIt expression"
       --evaluate arg "evaluate arg, print result then exit"
       --file filename "evaluate contents of filename, print result then exit"
       --filein filelist "file in each file named in fileList"
       --cwd path "set FileDirectory defaultDirectory to path prior to evaluating other options"
       --debug "enter a debugger as soon as possible in the startUp processing"
       --help "print this message"
   some arguments have single character synonyms, -f is a synonym for --file, -d for --doit
   single '-' may be used instead of '--', -help is interpreted as --help
