Try looking at the $0, $1, $2, etc.  environment variables. I think  
$1 and $2 may be what you want.


on startup
  put $1 into tParam1
  put $2 into tParam2

There has been some discussion in the past about how these parameters  
are interpreted, (an issue with quotes if my memory serves) but I  
think the problems may have been limited to Windows.
