Is the a way to access argument tags in the arguments to a Qscript?

I have a script that takes a number of bam files as input and I would like to be able to tag them. i.e.

--input:whole-genome some_long_name.bam --input:exome a_different_bam.bam

In a walker I do this and then look up the tags by calling getToolkit().getTags(argumentValue), but this isn't available to a qscript. Is there a good way to do this?

Previously I have been running a command like this:

  java -jar /path/GenomeAnalysisTK.jar \ 

  -T UnifiedGenotyper \

  -R /path/human_g1k_v37.fasta \

  -et NO_ET \

  -K /path/key \

  -out_mode EMIT_ALL_SITES \

  --input_file /path/bam \

  -L /path/intervals \


  --alleles /path/vcf \

  --dbsnp /path/dbsnp_135.b37.vcf \

  -o /path/my.vcf

But I was reading the documentation again and I read this statement: GENOTYPE_GIVEN_ALLELES only the alleles passed in from a VCF rod bound to the -alleles argument will be used for genotyping

Which lead me to believe that there wasn't a need to include the lines: --input_file /path/bam \ -L /path/intervals \

because it would be redundant. But when I try to run without those line I get back an error message: Walker requires reads but none were provided.

Can you give an explaination as to why both of those lines AND GENOTYPE_GIVEN_ALLELES would be needed?
