Hi Tim --

Also: https://github.com/squeak-smalltalk/squeak-app/issues/26 [https://github.com/squeak-smalltalk/squeak-app/issues/26]

Yet, passing arguments directly to SqueakConsole.exe should work.

The good ol' "start in tray minimized" trick does not work anymore. Squeak gets maximized all the time these days. There is no other "headless" option yet as far as I know.

I'll also mention that I have SqueakJS running as a headless Web
Worker process, with the Deno JS runtime (the successor to NodeJS, also
using V8). I'm writing an option for writing primitives in WebAssembly
(or WA transpiled from Smalltalk compiled methods). Deno runs on all

Could be interesting.
