Opening Notes document from cmd prompt

A developer wants to know how to open a Notes document from the cmd prompt.

How can I open a Notes document from a cmd prompt, i.e., run: Notes names.nsf documentname? I know the document name (not the ID). A position to - should do the trick if a direct open isn't possible.
Use a Notes URL, which can be of the form: Notes://serverCommonName/databasepath/viewname/docid. So, for instance, the following command line:
 
C:\Documents and Settings\
aguirard>notes.exe 
Notes://periscope/names.nsf/Contacts/
F4073D1DC30011ED86257082005E1029
