starting TC/LE on the command line

Hi,

I am new to TC/LE and would appreciate some help from those of you who are experienced with its use.

I would like to start TC from the command line, have it open up a new tab (along with the startup tabs I created in the interface). This new tab would be already navigated to a specified directory. For instance, a pseudo-command line would be

> tcmd.exe /T /D "C:\start\here"

where the flag T would specify a new tab and D would specify the 'start in' directory.

I have read through what I thought were the relevant parts of the documentation ("Take Command Startup Options"), but was not able to get this functionality through the command line flags listed on that help page. I'm sure that I must be doing something wrong.

Thank you for your help.

I presume that you already have TCMD running, and you are using an instance
of either TCC or TCC/LE in one of its tabs, and you want to issue a TCC (or
TCC/LE) command to START the new TCC(/LE) instance in a new tab. Use the
START command with the /TAB option - see the details on the HELP page for
the START command.
