converting MCMC samples between auteur and coda
a phylogenetic tree of class 'phylo' against which to compile results; if NULL, the tree stored within the
coda format of run(s) is recommended for diagnostic purposes; for summarization,
auteur formats are advised. For single chains, the format adopted by both auteur and coda is identical (an object of class
For a series of combined runs, formats differ between the auteur and coda packages: auteur requires an intercalated (single) matrix of values, whereas functions within coda
expect the values to be concatenated into a list (of class
mcmc.list). The function
to.coda is used solely for pooling multiple runs into a format compatible with the coda package.
to.auteur, an object of class
auteurMCMCMC (given multiple runs) or
auteurMCMC (given a single run) is returned;
to.coda, an object of class
codaMCMCMC is returned.
