Changes for PDAP:PDTREE for version 1.12
Note that the registration form has been removed for the time being. Thank you for citing the Mesquite PDAP:PDTREE package in your publications.
This version has been updated to operate with Mesquite 2.5.
Most of the PDAP screens will operate with the "Step Through Trees..." command in the Tree Menu. The resulting file will contain a dump of all the reported fields in the text view of the active PDAP screen. The exception is screen 9B, which doesn't contain summary statistics in its text screen. Note that field names preceed field values on the same line, rather than as column headers, as in other Mesquite packages that return multiple values.
Another way to get upper and lower confidence interval values for the root reconstruction in screen 9A as been added with the scriptable NumberFor2CharAndTree module RootReconstructionCIs, which returns one of the confidence interval bounds as a result of its doCalculations method. Which bound to return is set by the setReportMode command.
The internals of the root reconstruction screens (9A and 9B) have been revised, and any remaining irregularities with chart scaling should be resolved.
