Write Tree File in Parenthetic Format

This function writes in a file a tree in parenthetic format using the Newick (also known as New Hampshire) format.

Keywords
manip, IO
Usage
write.tree(phy, file = "", append = FALSE,
           digits = 10, tree.names = FALSE)
Details

The node labels and the root edge length, if available, are written in the file.

If tree.names == TRUE then a variant of the Newick format is written for which the name of a tree precedes the Newick format tree (parentheses are eventually deleted beforehand). The tree names are taken from the names attribute if present (they are ignored if tree.names is a character vector).

Value

a vector of mode character if file = "", none (invisible NULL) otherwise.
