                        -P,
                        --priority priority
                    

Specify the priority of the ToDo entry - 1|2|3|4|5 (defaults to a priority of 1).


 NOTE: this value has changed from the default of 4 to the default of 1, just as a new ToDo entry on the Palm would set it.


                        -d,

The due Date MM/DD/YYYY (defaults to blank, no due date if this is not specified).
