	       in this case the resulting window will be P% of your screen.

       -p password
	   Password used in authentication.

       -s shell

	   m - (modem)
	       Equivalent to 15.

	   b - (broadband)
	       Equivalent to 1.

	   l - (lan)

	       A hexadecimal number that represents a bit-mask, were numbers mean the following

		   Disable desktop wallpaper.

		   Disable full-window drag (only the window outline is displayed when the window
		   is moved).

		   Disable menu animations.

		   Disable user interface themes.

		   Disable mouse cursor shadows.

		   Disable cursor blinking.

		   Enable font smoothing.

		   Enable Desktop Composition.

       -X xid
	   embed xfreerdp into window with xid.

	   Enable compression.

	   initialize a RemoteApp connection. This implies -g workarea.

	   Skips authentication. This is useful e.g. for the current FreeRDP server that doesn't
	   yet support server-side authentication.

	   Only authenticates. This is useful to test your credentials (username and password).

       --ext extname
	   load extension extname

	   Disables fast-path. Use slow-path packets instead, which have larger headers. It might

	   parsing of one of the two header types.

	   Prompts for unspecified arguments -u username, -p password, -d domain and connection
	   host. This is useful to hide arguments from ps. Also useful for scripts that will feed
	   these arguments to the client via (what else?) stdin.
