Bio::Matrix::IO::mlagan - A parser for the mlagan substitution matrix


  use Bio::Matrix::IO;
  my $parser = Bio::Matrix::IO->new(-format => 'mlagan',
                                   -file   => 'nucmatrix.txt');
  my $matrix = $parser->next_matrix;
  my $gap_open = $parser->gap_open;
  my $gap_continue = $parser->gap_continue;


Use to read in and write out substitution matrix files suitable for use by mlagan.
