I am looking for Unix programs which can read in treefiles
and perform comparisons between pairs of (phylogenetic,
evolutionary) trees.  A method to simply compare topologies
(rooted and unrooted) would be useful, as well as methods
which take into account branch lengths.

My searches on the internet have not come up with anything
except a dos program called trecmp.  I would be most
appreciative if anyone could point me to programs, or
share programs.  I am hoping to avoid writing code
to this, as I assume this has been done numerous times already.
