r-rncl 0.8.6 Interface to the Nexus class library

This package provides an interface to the Nexus class library which allows parsing of NEXUS, Newick and other phylogenetic tree file formats. It provides elements of the file that can be used to build phylogenetic objects such as ape's phylo or phylobase's phylo4(d). This functionality is demonstrated with read_newick_phylo() and read_nexus_phylo().
