What command line switches exist for Notepad?

I found a few:

/A <filename> opens file as ANSI
/W <filename> opens file as Unicode
/P <filename> prints filename

Are there others?

Judging by this page: the /.setup switch was used during the automated setup of verrry old versions of Windows. – sahmeepee May 14 '11 at 8:57

/S suppresses the file-not-found prompt (you still get another prompt).

You can also use CMD.exe to control window size (and pipe input):

cmd.exe /c start /max notepad.exe c:/temp/toto.txt
