I think I found it under the heading "1.7. What is the best way to  
generate "standalone documents" using Forrest?":

# The URL to start crawling from

I guessed that it could use the prefix '-D' as in the following, and  
it worked:

forrest -Dproject.start-uri=index.pdf

I noticed that the docs do not contain info on how to use this  
feature with the Command Line Interface (CLI), which might be a good  
feature to add--not just for this, but for any parameters which can  
be used from the CLI.

The problem was that I was searching for 'single page' or 'single- 
document'' (which is the ANCHOR name, but not the heading name, and  
hence my searches never found it).

As I alluded to above, I'd still like to see the following reference
