I can't find the -osint paramater explained anywhere.

Can someone point me to it's documentation or tell me what it does?


thx

-osint is not meant to be used on the command line, but is meant to be used with shortcuts launched via the OS shell. When this parameter is used (should be the first parameter) then only a limited set of parameters (commands) is allowed and a command should should be followed by one parameter to guard against applications that do not format this parameter correctly.
