The Newick Utilities are a suite of programs for working with Newick-formatted phylogenetic trees. Documentation ============= See in subdirectory 'doc'. Installing ========== Binaries -------- If you have a binaries distribution (that is, with a name like newick-utils-x.y.z-linux-x86-64.tar.gz), you do not have to compile. The binaries are in ./src ; they all have names that start with nw_, so you can do $ sudo cp src/nw_* /usr/local/bin # or wherever you want You can test the programs by cd'ing to ./tests, and doing the following: $ ./test_binaries.sh Source ------ If you have a source-only distribution, or if you want to build the binaries yourself, it's the familiar $ autoreconf -fi $ ./configure $ make $ make check # optional but recommended $ sudo make install In addition to a C compiler (I use GCC), you need Flex and Bison (possibly already on your system); optionally you can use LibXML, GNU Guile, and Lua. See in the manual (doc/nwutils_tutorial.pdf) for details.
