DESCRIPTION

   Usage:

       <m1>   Comma-separated   list  of  files  containing  upstream  mates  (or  the  sequences
              themselves, if -c is set) paired with mates in <m2>

       <m2>   Comma-separated list  of  files  containing  downstream  mates  (or  the  sequences
              themselves if -c is set) paired with mates in <m1>

       <r>    Comma-separated list of files containing Crossbow-style reads.  Can be a mixture of
              paired and unpaired.  Specify "-" for stdin.

       <s>    Comma-separated  list  of  files  containing  unpaired  reads,  or  the   sequences
