Starting Application Through File Manager

What do I have to do to make my application respond to a file-kickstart (double-click)in file-manager? When I select and associate a specific file type with my application it only executes my app without opening the specific file.

For instance, if the user starts your app from File Manager by double clicking on an associated file, that filename will be on the command line. You can use Command$ to figure out what to do first.
