to report a little typo


I am new to the GATK forum and I am not sure It's the right place I am posting to so all my apologies if I am in the wrong place. However, I wanted just to report a little typo that occurs here:

Actually, within the usage example box, the "known" argument is written as follow:

--known indels.vcf

Well, if you execute it as it is, it produces the ERROR MESSAGE: Argument with name 'known' isn't defined.

In fact, and according to the same link, for IndelRealigner you should use either --knownAlleles or -known instead of the --known argument which work well for RealignerTargetCreator.

All the best.
