[Programming Help] - Pass Arguments to External Program on Alert

Under Global Settings --> Alerts / General 3 there is a setting for each alert that says "Run Program When This Alert Triggered".

Is it possible to pass out arguments with that?

For instance:
C:\myAlertProgram.exe -atr "{ID5.SG1}"

Which would be the same as running this at the command line:
C:\myAlertProgram.exe -atr "0.00023"

That would be very useful.
