NAME

       NEXUSvalidator - validate NEXUS file

DESCRIPTION

       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>

OPTIONS

       -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
