Bio::Matrix::IO::phylip - A parser for PHYLIP distance matricies


  use Bio::Matrix::IO;
  my $parser = Bio::Matrix::IO->new(-format   => 'phylip',
                                   -file     => 't/data/phylipdist.out');
  my $matrix = $parser->next_matrix;


This is a parser for PHYLIP distance matrix output.
