NAME

       reroot - Compute a (new) root for the tree.

SYNOPSIS

       reroot [OPTIONS] tree-file

DESCRIPTION

       This program reroots the trees in <treefile> on an selected edge.

       The  default  is to output a random rerooting, but you can also choose to give the edge to
       put the root on, or an outgroup, or even all possible rootings.

       Output is written to stdout unless the exhaustive rooting is chosen. Then -o is giving the
       prefix for filenames to use and the results are written to <prefix>_<n>.tree, where <n> is
       the node number of the head of the edge.

       Warning! In the current implementation all time/length info is lost.
