A BEAST2 package for relaxed clock models within local clock models
FLC is a package for BEAST 2, so it assumes you already have BEAST 2 installed. If you have not already done so, you can get BEAST 2 from here.
There are two ways to install a package in BEAST2:

Manage Packagesmenu the in the
Filemenu. This will open a window showing the package names.
- Locate and select the package name
FLCin the table and click the
- Close the window et voila the package should be installed.
The hard way is to install manually the package:
To see where add-ons are installed launch BEAUTi, click the button with question mark in the dialog’s bottom right corner. A new dialog is shown with the information where you can find add-ons. Different operating systems have different locations where the add-ons are installed. More info.
Unzip the latest release in the add-on directory.
If you have multiple versions of BEAST and the add-on was installed with BEAUTi v2.5 the add-on will be only available for BEAST v2.5. Add-ons need to be installed for each version.
