% Rmap -o Map.out -c 23 -vm 3 -vd 1 -t 5

Simulates a random map where the number of markers on each of 23 chromosomes has a normal distribution with mean 16 and standard deviation 3. The intermaker distance is normally distributed with mean 10 cM and standard deviation 1. There will be some genetic material outside the flanking markers on each chromosome, with a mean length of 5 cM and standard deviation 0.5.

% Rmap -o Map.out -i map.mps

Opens the file *map.mps*, tries to determine its format, and translates it if
possible. The output will be written to the file *Map.out*. The extension **.mps**
should be used with **MAPMAKER** output files and the string *-filetype mapmaker.mps*
should be put somewhere in the first twenty lines of the file.
