Depending on where you installed Cura the default would be:

For example to get the help

Usage: cura.py [options] <filename>.stl

 

Options:

-h, --help show this help message and exit

Load settings from a profile ini file

-r PRINTFILE, --print=PRINTFILE

Open the printing interface, instead of the normal

cura interface.
