|Older versions of PHYLIP|
PHYLIP has been distributed since October of 1980, when version 1.0 was released. Early versions differed mostly by minor bug fixes, but as time went on more and more changes were included in each release.
Many older versions of PHYLIP are available from our server. These were in Pascal, and what you will find there is the Pascal source code and the documentation files. (At a later date I may also release the compiled executables for some of these versions.)
They are in the form of Unix tar archives, which can be un-tar'ed on
any Unix server, but putting them in a directory of their own and then
issuing the command
tar xvf phylip17.tar
(or whatever the archive name is).
tar command will also work in a Command Tool window on Windows
10, and in a Terminal window on Mac OS. These are found, respectively, in the
Accessories menu and in the Utilities subfolder in the Applications folder. You might need to omit the "v" switch
and use a "-" to designate the switches, as in the command
tar -xf phylip17.tar
You should be able to get the programs to execute by compiling then with Gnu Pascal or with Free Pascal. Some attention may be needed to the RESET and REWRITE statements (and associated ATTACH statements that are needed with them or instead of them). That may include specifying input and output file names in those statements.
The versions are:
|Version||Date of Release||Name of archive file||Size of archive file|
|3.5c||March, 1993||(see below)|
More are coming. Version 1.7 is the earliest one that I have. Version 1.0 was released in October, 1980. A reading of the "bugs" file in version 1.7 will show that only a few bug fixes and minor features separate versions 1.0 and 1.7.
These programs are, of course, primitive compared to later programs. They are presented here primarily for their historical interest.
Although the official version now being distributed is 3.6, the previous version, 3.5c, was so widely used that it may be useful to continue to have it available here.
If you wish, you can register here after you have transferred version 3.5c
Here you will find more information about how to install PHYLIP 3.5c on your computer once you have fetched the appropriate archive files.
