VCF VARIANT NOTES

       If  the  option  --input-vcf/-iv is given then the given VCF file is read and the variants
       are applied to the input reference file.  If it is not given then the input reference file
       is taken verbatimly for simulating reads.

       There  are  some  restrictions  on the VCF file and the application of the variants to the
       reference will fail if the VCF file is non-conforming.  VCF files from the  mason_variator
       program are guaranteed to be read.

       Only the haplotypes of the first individual will be generated.
