Hi! I installed this program to fill the gaps in my assembly by local reassembly but reading the usage, I don't know where should I put the reads that I want to use to help fill the gaps.

image.pl -scaffolds scaffolds.fa -prefix 76bp -iteration 1 -all_iteration 10 -dir_prefix ite

Here all the options:

Does anyone have experience with this tool? or can recommend me another tool to fill the gaps in the assembly with more paired-end reads?

Thanks a lot for your help in advance :)
