       [-h]   = This helpful help screen.

       [-q N] = Quality threshold - nucleotides with lower quality will be masked

              Default is 10.

       [-r C] = Replace low-quality nucleotides with character C. Default is 'N'

       [-z]   = Compress output with GZIP.

       [-i INFILE]
              = FASTQ input file. default is STDIN.

              [-o OUTFILE] = FASTQ output file. default is  STDOUT.   [-v]          =  Verbose  -
              report number of sequences.

       If [-o] is specified,
              report will be printed to STDOUT.

              If  [-o]  is  not  specified (and output goes to STDOUT), report will be printed to
