Hi, Dong and Kevin,

I am sorry that I sent you the wrong script. Please discard the Newick.pl
script. Instead use the Newick-step.pl I attached this time.
The script requires a ClusteringMerging.txt or ClusteringSplitting.txt file
and total number of frames in the trajectory, also you can provide a number
n to show the last n steps of merging. The previous Newick.pl generates all
steps, which the plottree cannot handle.

Best,

Jianyin
