So -O z implies that the name should be basename.vcf.gz (or basename.vcf.bgz).

If you have a single variant you just want to examine, you could use -v and output to a standard vcf file (text).
So do I need to create a new file for the output prior to running this command? how would the command look if I use -v without overwriting my file again. Sorry if these are simple questions. Thanks!
