    iTunes command line interface

    Is there one?
    I've read the Help files, explored the menus, and browsed the web site and Google Groups without coming up with a clue.
    I'd like to have a shortcut to Itunes 6 that tells it to start playing as soon as it loads.
    Dear old WinAmp was easy - ""C:Program FilesWinampwinamp.exe" C:Music".

    When I try that trick with iTunes 6, it merely duplicates the existing entries in the Library.

    I'm interested in having iTunes start playing music as soon as the system reboots ......

    No, but thanks for asking (grin!). Also, thanks for the fast response.
    I did d/l the stuff and read the RTF. It appears to me (the 10-secnd overview) that the d/l is for Mac Users.
    Emboldened I explored the iTunes forlder on my hard drive, and wandered the registry, just in case there was a clue, but found none.

    Sigh. This may be another of those chunks of software that assumes a user is standing by willing and able to click a mouse .....

    That's Apple for you... you don't need to know, don't want to know, and everything will be done for you without your ever having to know. <img src=/S/grin.gif border=0 alt=grin width=15 height=15>

    Give up, Chris. The iTunes UI is relatively easy to come to terms with. I never try to use it to play anything since I got lucky once and it has remained silent since (it is NOT my default for audio files anyhow). Didn't you know that command line instructions are obsolete? <img src=/S/wink.gif border=0 alt=wink width=15 height=15>
