NEXUSvalidator - validate NEXUS file
NEXUSvalidator takes reads a file and exits with a success (return code 0) if the file is valid. The most common usage is simply: NEXUSvalidator <path to NEXUS file>
-h on the command line shows this help message -q suppress NCL status messages while reading files -l<path> reads a file and treats each line of the file as a path to NEXUS file -a output AltNexus (no translation table in trees) -x do NOT validate internal labels in trees as taxa labels -X do NOT treat numbers in trees as taxon numbers, treat them as arbitrary labels (should not be used with NEXUS files). -s<non-negative integer> controls the NEXUS strictness level. the default level is equivalent to -s2 invoking the program with -s3 or a higher number will convert some warnings into fatal errors. Running with -s1 will cause the parser to accept dangerous constructs, and running with -s0 will cause the parser make every attempt to finish parsing the file (warning about very serious errors). Note that when -s0 strictness level is used, and the parser fails to finish, it will often be the result of an earlier error than the error that is reported in the last message. -f<format> specifies the input file format expected: -fnexus NEXUS (this is also the default) -faafasta Amino acid data in fasta -fdnafasta DNA data in fasta -frnafasta RNA data in fasta The complete list of format names that can follow the -f flag is: nexus dnafasta aafasta rnafasta dnaphylip rnaphylip aaphylip discretephylip dnaphylipinterleaved rnaphylipinterleaved aaphylipinterleaved discretephylipinterleaved dnarelaxedphylip rnarelaxedphylip aarelaxedphylip discreterelaxedphylip dnarelaxedphylipinterleaved rnarelaxedphylipinterleaved aarelaxedphylipinterleaved discreterelaxedphylipinterleaved dnaaln rnaaln aaaln phyliptree relaxedphyliptree nexml dnafin aafin rnafin
