OPTIONS

           files ...
                 A  space-separated  list  of  filenames.  Absolute and relative filenames can be
                 used. Geany also recognises line and column information  when  appended  to  the
                 filename  with colons, e.g.  "geany foo.bar:10:5" will open the file foo.bar and
                 place the cursor in line 10 at column 5.

                 Projects can also be opened but a project file (*.geany) must be the first  non-
                 option argument.  All additionally given files are ignored.

           +number
                 Set  initial line number for the first opened file (same as --line, do not put a
                 space between the + sign and the number). E.g. "geany +7 foo.bar" will open  the
                 file foo.bar and place the cursor in line 7.

           --column
                 Set  initial column number for the first opened file (useful in conjunction with
                 --line).

       -c, --config
                 Use an alternate configuration directory.  Default  configuration  directory  is
                 ~/.config/geany/ and there resides geany.conf and some template files.

           --ft-names
                 Print a list of Geany's internal filetype names (useful snippets configuration).

       -g, --generate-tags
                 Generate a global tags file (see documentation).

       -P, --no-preprocessing
                 Don't preprocess C/C++ files when generating tags.

       -i, --new-instance
                 Don't  open  files  in  a  running instance, force opening a new instance.  Only
                 available if Geany was compiled with support for Sockets.

       -l, --line
                 Set initial line number for the first opened file.

           --list-documents
                 Return a list of open documents in a running Geany instance.  This can  be  used
                 to read the currently opened documents in Geany from an external script or tool.
                 The returned list is separated by newlines (LF) and consists of the full,  UTF-8
                 encoded  filenames  of the documents.  Only available if Geany was compiled with
                 support for Sockets.

       -m, --no-msgwin
                 Don't show the message window. Use  this  option  if  you  don't  need  compiler
                 messages or VTE support.

       -n, --no-ctags
                 Don't  load  symbol  completion and call tip data. Use this option, if you don't
                 want to use them.  For more information please see documentation.

       -p, --no-plugins
                 Don't load plugin support.

           --print-prefix
                 Print installation prefix, the data directory, the lib directory and the  locale
                 directory  (in this order) to stdout, each per line. This is mainly intended for
                 plugin authors to detect installation paths.

       -r, --read-only
                 Open all files given on the command line in read-only mode. This only applies to
                 files  opened  explicitly from the command line, so files from previous sessions
                 or project files are unaffected.

       -s, --no-session
                 Don't load the previous session's files.

       -t, --no-terminal
                 Don't load terminal support. Use this option, if you  don't  want  to  load  the
                 virtual  terminal  emulator  widget  at  startup.  If you don't have libvte.so.4
                 installed, then terminal-support is automatically disabled.  Only  available  if
                 Geany was compiled with support for VTE.

           --socket-file
                 Use this socket filename for communication with a running Geany instance

           --vte-lib
                 Specify  explicitly  the path including filename or only the filename to the VTE
                 library, e.g.  /usr/lib/libvte.so or libvte.so. This option is only needed, when
                 the  autodetection  doesn't  work.  Only  available  if  Geany was compiled with
                 support for VTE.

       -v, --verbose
                 Be verbose (print useful status messages).

       -V, --version
                 Show version information and exit.

       -?, --help
                 Show help information and exit.

       Geany supports all generic GTK options, a list is available on the help screen.
