Shell help?

Is it possible to open a drawer from a shell command? I don't mean to list the contents of the directory, I mean to actually open the drawer on the screen by typing a command in a shell. Any thoughts?

like this one:
http://aminet.net/package/util/cli/APT-WBOpen11

there are more on aminet.

Since 3.5 workbench has an Arexx port so you can control some aspects of it via scripts or sending Arexx commands.
