I want to do my installation of pkg file as silent install from mac terminal. So i used the below command to do silent install.

sudo installer -store -pkg "/User/MyName/Desktop/helloWorld.pkg" -target /

It perfectly installed my application. But i want to pass arguments from this command line script to package installer that was created in package maker. So that i can able to use this argument value in post/pre installation script inside the package installer.

Is there any possibility to pass my value as argument in the above command?
