PHYML bootstrap value bug

Description (last modified by westram)

When performing bootstrapping with PHYML (currently only possible in interactive mode):

  • the resulting tree contains bootstrap values as branchlengths
  • these bootstrap values are absolute (should to be relative)

To fix this bug, add bootstrapping option to ARB interface (by implementing #128) .

Original report from Adrian:

I just noticed a minor Bug with the bootstrap value in ARB. When you are creating a tree with Phylm Maximum likelihood and a certain amount of Bootstrap the value you will have on each node afterward will be the number of tree with this node and not a percentage value.

For example if I set a bootstrap of 33; I won't have any values over 33% and if I set a bootstrap of 1000 I will have nice over the top values.

It's not that important, I can still calculate the normal value (Or stick to 100 bootstrap) But I thought it will be good to be mentioned.
