I'm not sure what you want, but if you use qlmanage -h you will get information on them (as shown below). I mainly used it to display images, but I was also able to use it to preview MS Word files and also iWorks files.
Also, I used the kill command as shown in this web page: http://srhaber.com/blog/2007/11/04/quick-look-from-the-command-line/
I also found this web page useful: http://www.tuaw.com/tag/qlmanage/
