KDE file association. Which parameters can be passed to the command?


I use kubuntu 8.04.

I can associate an extension to a program, so that program will open that file when I click it.
But the commad association accept many parameters:

Ex: For a .html extension I see:
firefox %u
kate --use %U

For .aac I see:
noatun %i %m -caption "%c" %U
gmplayer %F

What this variables mean?: %u, %i, %m %c, %U, %F

How can I know all the variables available?
