[oXygen-user] Go to or search a particular line from command prompt

Hi list,

we are currently exploring ways to establish a semi-automatic workflow 
for post-digitization tasks with TEI files. An external tool will 
generate lists of unknown words along with a value that uniquely 
identifies the line that the respective word is in, so I would like to 
be able to make oxygen go to the relevant line easily while still 
working in that list. (I am currently thinking along the lines of 
hyperlinks, or office macros in the list/spreadsheet.)

Can I pass an action like "open file xy and go to line number yz" or 
"open file xy and search for string 'yz'" to oxygen as a commandline 
option (like 'vim +yz xy' or 'vim +/yz xy')?

Of course I am also open to alternative approaches, although I suppose 
coding an oXygen plugin in java for that purpose surpasses my 

Thanks for any pointers,
