How to tell Workbench to show a drawer and select a file (or files)?

Is it possible for a program or AREXX script to ask Workbench to display a drawer and select a file (or files) in it? It would be important that Workbench would scroll the drawer so that the selected file is in fact visible.

Re: How to tell Workbench to show a drawer and select a file ...

Lookin inot WB-ARexx.guide

Example:

/* Select the icons of the "Workbench" and "Work" volumes
* displayed in the root window.
*/
ADDRESS workbench

ICON WINDOW root NAMES Workbench Work SELECT

/* Open the "Workbench" volume icon displayed in the root
* window.
*/
ICON WINDOW root NAMES Workbench OPEN

tested under Shell/CLI:
#rx "address workbench; window windows 'RAM:T' open; icon window 'RAM:T' 'usb.log' select makevisible;"

it opens RAM:T drawer and shows/selects usb.log.
