This method is designed to remove the dummy tip added to a dataset before running with Mr. Bayes.

## Usage

drop.dummy.mb(
tree.file,
output.file = NULL,
dummy.name = "dummy",
convert.ages = TRUE
)

## Arguments

tree.file

path to file containing the tree with dummy tip

output.file

path to file to write converted tree. If NULL (default), the tree is simply returned.

dummy.name

name of the added dummy tip, default dummy.

convert.ages

whether height metadata should be converted to height - offset (required to plot e.g. HPD intervals correctly). Default TRUE.

## Value

list of tree converted tree (as treedata) ; and offset age of the youngest tip in the final tree
