I have a very hard time using the scripting language of Mesquite. I
don't think the documentation on it is good and detailed. Here are some
problems I don't know to deal with, and I hope some of you can help me.
- How can change the object to which I will send command to? As I know
from the documentation, it can be done with a 'tell' command. However,
this simply doesn't work in many cases. For example, I want to create a
block of trees, and I send the following script to Mesquite:
Mesquite says it cannot execute the script returns a null object.
- In another script, I want to create a group of 10 taxa:
newTaxa 10 Species;
It worked, but I don't know why.
I would like to thank you in advance for your help.
