command line mobi generation and covers

I've looked through all the command line parameters to convert html to mobi, but I dont see a parameter to tell it to generate a cover for the mobi file.

Is it possible to have the cover generated automatically based off of metadata during command line conversion? The only place I see that I can generate a cover is the edit metadata screen inside calibre.

Use --cover to specify a cover. No you cannot generate a cover automatically when converting to mobi. convert to epub first and then convert that to mobi to have a generated cover.
