-d <db_files>

A list of tab delimited database files.

-o <out_files>

Explicit output file name. Note, this argument cannot be used with the –failed, –outdir, or –outname arguments. If unspecified, then the output filename will be based on the input filename(s).

--outdir <out_dir>

Specify to changes the output directory to the location specified. The input file directory is used if this is not specified.

--outname <out_name>

Changes the prefix of the successfully processed output file to the string specified. May not be specified with multiple input files.

--log <log_file>

Specify to write verbose logging to a file. May not be specified with multiple input files.

--failed

If specified create files containing records that fail processing.

-r <repo>

List of folders and/or fasta files (with .fasta, .fna or .fa extension) with germline sequences. When using the default Change-O sequence and coordinate fields, these reference sequences must contain IMGT-numbering spacers (gaps) in the V segment. Alternative numbering schemes, or no numbering, may work for alternative sequence and coordinate definitions that define a valid alignment, but a warning will be issued.

-g {full,dmask,vonly,regions}

Specify type(s) of germlines to include full germline, germline with D segment masked, or germline for V segment only.

--cloned

Specify to create only one germline per clone. Note, if allele calls are ambiguous within a clonal group, this will place the germline call used for the entire clone within the GERMLINE_V_CALL, GERMLINE_D_CALL and GERMLINE_J_CALL fields.

--sf <seq_field>

Field containing the aligned sequence.

--vf <v_field>

Field containing the germline V segment call.

--df <d_field>

Field containing the germline D segment call.

--jf <j_field>

Field containing the germline J segment call.
