Trace log – file name
Name of the file, or stdout if left blank. File names can be parameterised, and there are a few build-in parameters:
$(filebase)is replaced by the XML file name minus
$(seed)is replaced by the random number seed
So, if you set the file name to
$(filebase)-$(seed).log and use a file
beast.xml with seed
123 it saves the trace log in
You can also define your own parameters, and run BEAST with the
-D option to define the parameter.
For instance, setting the file name to
$(filebase)-$(run).log and running BEAST with
beast -D run=7 beast.xml
results in the trace file being written in
