How do I switch in/out of fullscreen mode from the command line in RealVNC?

This would be very handy, allowing me to keep my hands on the keyboard when I need to check my email (in Windows).

Thanks, but i have F8 mapped. Was hoping for something from the CLI. May have to go w/your suggestion if there's no suitable arg for vncconfig or the like. – subopt May 19 '11 at 17:17
