-L option file formats

I got this error message, when trying to use a file to specify at which positions to emit variants:

ERROR MESSAGE: Couldn't read file /lustre/scratch109/sanger/tc9/agv/wgs/pipeline/union4x.positions because The interval file /lustre/scratch109/sanger/tc9/agv/wgs/pipeline/union4x.positions does not have one of the supported extensions (.bed, .list, .picard, .interval_list, or .intervals). Please rename your file with the appropriate extension.
Is there a GATK page describing those 5 file formats? Some of them are unknown to me; e.g. .list.

I asked my question here, but please ignore it:

Thanks a lot.

Also, the error message does not mention support for vcf files, but the documentation does. Are vcf files supported?

    Just in case others are in doubt about the file format, this is what worked for me (.interval_list):
    22:51238831-51238831
    22:51238924-51238924
    22:51238983-51238983
    22:51239600-51239600
    22:51239664-51239664
    22:51239688-51239688
    22:51239696-51239696
    22:51239794-51239794
    22:51240081-51240081
    22:51240820-51240820
