According to the help file, "$CommandLine is a list of strings giving
the elements of the original operating system command line with which
Mathematica was invoked. "

I have been unable to find the following:
1) What exactly do the individual strings mean?
2) What are the "elements" allowed for an operating system command?
3) How is it possible to use $CommandLine to pass in arbitrary

Can anyone point me to this information?
