       dawg -[scubvhqew?] [-o outputfile] file1 [file2...]

       -s: process files serially [default]

       -c: process files combined together

       -u: unbuffered output

       -b: buffered output [default]

       -q: disable error and warning reports (quiet)

       -e: enable error reports [default]

       -w: enable warning reports [default]

       -v: display version information

       -h: display help information

       -?: same as -h

       -o outputfile: override output filename in the configuration file

              Dawg will read stdin if filename is "-".


              The  file  format takes a series of statements in the form of "name = value," where
              "name" is alphanumeric and value can be a string, number, boolean, tree, or  vector
              of values.  A single variable is equivalent to a vector of a single entry.

       string:  "[char-sequence]"

              '[char-sequence]'  """[multi-line char-sequence]""" (rm initial and final newlines)
              '''[multi-line char-sequence]''' (kp initial and final newlines)

       number:   [sign]digits[.digits][(e|E)[sign]digits]  boolean:  true|false  tree:     Newick
       Format vector:  { value, value, ...}
