emacs[client] --dired filenames

User-agent: Gnus/5.09 (Gnus v5.9.0) Emacs/21.1

$ man emacsclient              
No manual entry for emacsclient
ok, anyway
$ emacsclient --help       
Usage: emacsclient [-a ALTERNATE-EDITOR] [-n] [--no-wait] [+LINE[:COLUMN]] 
Or emacsclient --version

-n etc. not explained here.  --help not mentioned.  No tip on how to
see Info page "(emacs)Emacs Server"

BTW, I wanted to do
$ emacsclient a001\*
to get a dired listing of matching files matching a001* ... but no, no
can do.  Therefore I propose
$ emacsclient -d filenames
$ emacsclient --dired filenames
do like (dired "a001*" nil)
Also, * or would work, no need for \* ...

By the way, is there a need for
$ dired [filenames]
as one can't just use emacs -f dired filenames
to get emacs to take the arg list as filenames for dired...
hmm, better yet: emacs --dired filenames

Yes, I can do
$ emacs dir1 dir2 dir3
but what if I want
$ emacs file1 file2 file3
but in one dired window?
