We will be out of the office on November 11th and 13th 2019, due to the U.S. holiday(Veteran's day) and due to a team event(Nov 13th). We will return to monitoring the GATK forum on November 12th and 14th respectively. Thank you for your patience.

Return the entire VCF contents via picard?

biogreenbiogreen LondonMember

I would like to know how can I return the entire contents of a VCF file without having to know the chromosome/start/end parameters.
The VCFFileReader class has a query method that can return parts of the VCF like as:

VCFFileReader.query(chromosome, startPos, endPos);

What I would like is to be able to say: 'return everything the VCF has'.
Is there a way to do this with picard?
