*New 2010-04-07* Version 1.3.1 - Download here. This is the new version for RAxML v7.1.0 and above.
Version 1.2 - Download here. This is a legacy version and will only work with RAxML v7.0.4
This is a small wrapper script for the program RAxML. RAxML is a program for sequential and parallel Maximum Likelihood based inference of large phylogenetic trees. RAxML is available from here.
The script aims to make execution of RAxML a little easier by use of simple command-line menus and some user input.
The script relies on a few assumptions, these are:
To run the script, simply navigate to the easyRAx folder in your Terminal window and run perl easyRAx.pl.
Some code has been adapted from perl-scripts available on the RAxML homepage without permission, however, I hope that the authors will not take exception to this as it was done with the best of intentions. This has been reflected in the scripts comments. :)
** Please make sure that if you have a multi-core machine you compile the RAxML-PTHREADS version as well as the normal version and place them both in the /usr/bin/ folder.
* A recent test showed that easyRAx does indeed run on a Mac. It was tested with OSX 10.4.1 but should run on all newer versions of Mac OSX. NB - The "Guide to install RAxML on MACs" was used and may need to be followed for easyRAx.
