       mcmc_analysis - Analysis of the MCMC


       mcmc_analysis [OPTIONS] MCMC-data ...


       This  program  reads  MCMC  output,  from  one or several files, from programs in the BEEP
       package. It is important that the same columns are present in each input file.

       Input format:
         Output from MCMC iterations on the format
               <likelihood> <tab> <iter> <tab> <params>
               <likelihood> is the logarithm of the likelihood in float format
               <tab>        is tab whitespace separating the fields
               <iter>       is an integer for the ordinal of the iteration
               <params>     is a list of fields separated by semicolons containing
                            the parameters of the MCMC.

            The MCMC params are typed and given names by the first line in the file,
            which is on the format
               # L <tab> N <tab> [<name>(<type>)]+
            The names ought to be unique, but do not have to be. The <type> is one
            and used to infer how to parse and analyze the rest of the lines.

       Output format:
         A report on the MCMC run, with posterior estimates of the parameters.


       -b [FLOAT|INT]
              The percentage (0 <= x <1), or the number of (x is integer >= 1) of the input to be
              discarded as burnin. Default: 0.1.

       -p STRING
              Plot  the parameter named <string>. Output is two columns, the iteration number and
              the parameter's value in the iteration.

       -i STRING
              Ignore the named parameter. See header line in MCMC output for  column  names.  You
              can  name  several  columns  at  once  using  a  comma-delimited  format,  (e.g. -i
              Length,Name). No spaces allowed between column names.

       -t     Output LaTex for the analysis.

       -l     Count and report the number of samples in the input file.

       -mp NT The maximum number of points to plot.

       -sp    Explicitly indicate points in plots.

       -coda  Output file for the CODA package in R

              Same as -coda, but includes tree parameters. Each tree is output as an  integer  ID
              (order  of  visitation  in  chain,  1,2,...). Make sure to use -i to hide any trees
              containing lengths/times/rates.

       -P     Parallel chains. This implies that several files of (parallel) samples are listed.
