       Bio::MapIO::mapmaker - A Mapmaker Map reader


       # do not use this object directly it is accessed through the Bio::MapIO system

           use Bio::MapIO;
           my $mapio = Bio::MapIO->new(-format => "mapmaker",
                                                     -file   => "");
           while ( my $map = $mapio->next_map ) {  # get each map
                   foreach my $marker ( $map->each_element ) {
                      # loop through the markers associated with the map


       This object contains code for parsing and processing Mapmaker output and creating
       Bio::Map::MapI objects from it.
