Trying to open Beast with a nexus file and get this:
[Fatal Error] :1:1: Content is not allowed in prolog.
Maybe Beast does not like the nexus format
Maybe I have to convert my file to XML
By the way, I have never been able to open anything in Beast so it might be a bigger problem
Using BEAST v2.6.3, in an Anaconda environment on a Linux system. Starting the program from the terminal
Question is: how do I convert my phylogenetic tree file to something that makes Beast happy? I have tried xml but Beast did not like that either (not sure if the file was valid). Best scenario would be to just tweak my nex file so Beast would like it
