I tried this:
> aquamacs -version
and was greeted with the following error message shown below. Perhaps this
is enough information to answer your question? I have not updated my
aquamacs in quite some time, so perhaps the options are somewhat different
in a more modern version.
open: invalid option -- r
Usage: open [-e] [-t] [-f] [-W] [-R] [-n] [-g] [-h] [-s <partial SDK
name>][-b <bundle identifier>] [-a <application>] [filenames] [--args
Help: Open opens files from a shell.
By default, opens each file using the default application for that
If the file is in the form of a URL, the file will be opened as a URL.
-a Opens with the specified application.
-b Opens with the specified application bundle
-e Opens with TextEdit.
-t Opens with default text editor.
-f Reads input from standard input and opens with
-F --fresh Launches the app fresh, that is, without restoring
windows. Saved persistent state is lost, excluding Untitled documents.
-R, --reveal Selects in the Finder instead of opening.
-W, --wait-apps Blocks until the used applications are closed (even
if they were already running).
--args All remaining arguments are passed in argv to the
application's main() function instead of opened.
-n, --new Open a new instance of the application even if one
is already running.
-j, --hide Launches the app hidden.
-g, --background Does not bring the application to the foreground.
-h, --header Searches header file locations for headers matching
the given filenames, and opens them.
-s For -h, the SDK to use; if supplied, only SDKs
whose names contain the argument value are searched.
Otherwise the highest versioned SDK in each
platform is used.
