Default PLINK: bed to vcf conversion

Hi,

This is really dumb! I looked at the FAQ/online etc., but couldn't find this....

I want to convert my files (xx.bed, xx.bim, xx.fam) to vcf format. I am following the code given at: http://pngu.mgh.harvard.edu/~purcell...ta.html#recode

Here is my command line output:

============================
node00:[exomes] % ls
exomes.bed exomes.bim exomes.fam

node00:[exomes] % plink --bfile exomes --recode vcf-iid --out ./new_vcf

** Unused command line option: vcf-iid

ERROR: Problem parsing the command line arguments.
==========================================

I also tried giving the options 'vcf' and 'vcf-fid' but got the same results.

What am I doing wrong?

thanks,
