The nexml class represents a NeXML document, and is the top of the class hierarchy defined in this package, corresponding to the root node of the corresponding XML document.

Details

Normally objects of this type are created by the package as a result of reading a NeXML file, or of converting from another type, such as ape::phylo. Also, interacting directly with the slots of the class is normally not necessary. Instead, use the get_XXX() and add_XXX() functions in the API.

Slots

trees

list, corresponding to the list of <trees/> elements in NeXML. Elements will be of class trees.

characters

list, corresponding to the list of <characters/> elements in NeXML. Elements will be of class characters.

otus

list, corresponding to the list of <otus/> elements in NeXML. Elements will be of class otus.
