Another problem is we want to set the work folder to another one instead of the default, and set the environment of $NXF_WORK, $NXF_TEMP in nextflow.config based on the page http://www.nextflow.io/docs/latest/config.html#environment-variables. But nextflow still create "work" in the present directory, seems the config doesn't take effect. Is it correct to set this two variables? thank you.

@wuyilei $NXF_WORK and $NXF_TEMP cannot be defined in the nextflow config file. They must be defined in the environment before launching nextflow
@wuyilei env variables defined in the nextflow.config are meant for tools/commands executed by your pipeline
