Applescript should do the trick - see http://www.mactech.com/articles/mactech/vol.21/21.11/scriptingical/index.html

Thanks. I meant more like a live command-line, less automatic script, but a way to use Terminal like so: "ical add 12/12/09 13:45 Visit Mom" –  Konzepz Oct 15 '09 at 17:16
You can call an Applescript from the terminal and pass arguments to it - see developer.apple.com/mac/library/documentation/Darwin/Reference/… for an example. –  astrostl Oct 15 '09 at 17:38
This answer is out of date! –  Ivo Flipse Mar 15 '11 at 18:58
