How to pass arguments to Mac apps from windows

    I would like to run a Mac app from the windows command line. The parallels shared applications expose the Mac apps I would like to run, so that works great. However, I don't seem to be able to pass any command line arguments to them. They do not seem to make it to the Mac side.

    For example, I would like to run an app called Xcode.exe, which launches Xcode on the Mac side just fine, but passing a file to it does not open the file. If I launch this app directly from the Mac command line, a passed files is opened.

    Passing arguments to Mac apps from windows would be lovely, maybe someone can share a trick? Thanks.

    Use ssh and a terminal emulator and log into the host. You're going to run into all sorts of path name and quoting trouble otherwise.
