Dear regular PHYLIP users!
I'm just starting to use the programmes, and have problems that I
can't find the answers to, neither in the FAQ on the homepage, nor
in the documentation. I'm sure they're just due to my omitting
some little vital information, but I just can't figure out what that
The problem is that although I have an input file called *.inf with the
data (sequences) in the correct input format (I hope; I've checked
and rechecked against the programme documentations: 1. line
only containing the number of OTUs and number of sites, then the
sequences, with each OTU-label being 10 spaces long), whenever I
try to open up one of the programmes (eg DNADIST, DNAML etc), I
get the message "can't read infile".
Could somebody please tell me what I'm doing wrong? Do I need to
specify the directory, in which my input file can be found? Or is
something wrong with my input format after all?
Thanks a lot,
