Control file for likelihood

An example of a valid control file for likelihood can be found in appendix A.1. In its control file, the likelihood program requires the specification of:

* a DATAFILE block: see the data file block section.
* a MODEL block: see the model block section.
* Tree file: the name of the file containing the phylogeny, i.e., a tree in the Newick format (section 2.1.2), with branch lengths values.
Tree file = data/mammals-consensus.tree
* Model parameters file: the name of the file containing parameter values for the model defined in the MODEL block above. Simulate can help you to produce this file.
Model parameters file = data/mammals-consensus.model
