If you run the following command:
soffice --help
An alert will pop up giving you a complete reference on how to use the soffice on the command line. If you get an error saying soffice is an invalid command, make sure the current directory is LibreOfficeInstallFolder\program.
LibreOfficeInstallFolder is usually:
[on Windows 32-bit] C:\Program Files\LibreOffice 4
[on Windows 64-bit] C:\Program Files (x86)\LibreOffice 4
The cd command (at least on Windows) will change the directory.
So, on a Windows 64-bit system, to get the complete soffice command reference, I would run the following commands:
cd "C:\Program Files (x86)\LibreOffice 4\program"
soffice --help

If you are looking for more detail on a certain command parameter, performing a simple web search should work fine.

There are plenty of snippets on the web about using soffice command line for document conversion, for example, but I cannot find documentation. Looking for 'soffice' in the LO help file yields no results.

Anyone have any idea?
