Marek Szuba requested to merge github/fork/tweep/patch-1 into master

Created by: tweep

Using Getopt::ArgvFile allows to pass long, complex commandline options via a file to, so you can overwrite various options in your PipeConfig module without having super-long commandlines. We needed this as we run various pipelines with ever-changing options, and we do not want to change the installation of our pipelines all the time. Getopt::ArgvFile plays well with Getopt::Long and no additional changes are needed - well, except installing Getopt::ArgvFile ...

USAGE: perl Bio::EnsEMBL::Hive::PipeConfig:;Whaterver @myconfigfile.conf

The format of the configuration file you pass in is a key/value file : --option value --option2 value2
