Calling CityDesk from command line


Is there any way of calling CityDesk with some parameters that would allow me to auto publish my site by just clicking an icon or by calling CityDesk from the command prompt?

Maybe pass in the .cty filename, publish location and anything else.

What I'm thinking is if you had a site that allowed article submissions from the internet, you could have an asp page to allow the article details to be typed in, which would then write the info directly into the .cty file, and would call CityDesk with the necessary parameters and rebuild the site.

Any thoughts ?

This is one the major limitations in CityDesk IMO.  What I would really like to see is a standalone command line program that would build the site given a .cty file and the configuration to build.  It would also be nice to be able to specify where to build it.
