Just for information, this is from RSqueak:

    Usage: ./rsqueak [-r|-m|-h] [-naPu] [-jpiS] [-tTslL] <path> [--] [Squeak arguments]
            <path> - image path (default: Squeak.image)
            Squeak arguments are passed on to the Squeak image rather than being processed.

            -r|--run <code>  - Code will be compiled and executed in
                               headless mode, result printed.
            -m|--method <selector>
                             - Selector will be sent to nil in
                               headless mode, result printed.
            -n|--num <int>   - Only with -m or -r. SmallInteger to be used as
                               receiver (default: nil).
            -a|--arg <arg>   - Only with -m. Will be used as String argument.
            -P|--process     - Only with -m or -r. Disable headless mode.
                               A high-priority Process for the new context will
                               be created. The last active Process in the image
                               will be started, but then quickly switch to the
                               synthetic high-prio Process.
            -u|--stop-ui     - Only with -m or -r. Try to stop UI-process at
                               startup. Can help benchmarking.
            --shell          - Stop after loading the image. Any code typed is
                               compiled an run.

And some others.
(Admittedly, most are a bit overly specific, but have served well, especially the shell is cool)

Best regards
