Bio::Phylo::Parsers::Tolweb - Parser used by Bio::Phylo::IO, no serviceable parts inside
This module parses Tree of Life data. It is called by the Bio::Phylo::IO facade, don't call it directly. In addition to parsing from files, handles or strings (which are specified by the -file, -handle and -string arguments) this parser can also parse xml directly from a url (-url => $tolweb_output), provided you have LWP installed.
There is a mailing list at https://groups.google.com/forum/#!forum/bio-phylo for any user or developer questions and discussions.
The ToL web parser is called by the Bio::Phylo::IO object. Look there to learn how to parse Tree of Life data (or any other data Bio::Phylo supports).
