On a shortcut .ink file (WinNT and variants), how does the "Target" work?

For example, starting Firefox in safe mode from an .ink, the target box says:

"C:\Program Files\Mozilla Firefox\firefox.exe" -safe-mode

I understand the command in the "", but what can the -(whatever) command actually do? Is there a list of them somewhere? Just curious...

it all depends onthe program you link to. it varies from software to software. the -safemode for example is just a switch the developer added for convience.
