re: Bootstrap question

The good people at PAUP (Jim and Dave) were kind enough to answer my
question and the process works~!  Although it does take more time than
promised, it takes less time than I feared.

For anyone interested it goes like this:

>>The time need to do a bootstrap analysis increases linearly with the
number of replicates.  So, if your heuristic search only took a
couple of seconds then your bootstrap will probably take about 200
seconds if you are doing 100 bootstrap replicates.

To run a bootstrap just type something like this:

bootstrap treefile=futz1.out nreps=100 search=heuristic;

More options under the bootstrap command are describe in the command
reference document. <<

You can also type in "nreps=10 search" to sample the process.
