       Bio::Factory::TreeFactoryI - Factory Interface for getting and writing trees
         from/to a data stream


         # get a $factory from somewhere Bio::TreeIO likely
         my $treeio = Bio::TreeIO->new(-format => 'newick', #this is phylip/newick format
                                      -file   => 'file.tre');
         my $treeout = Bio::TreeIO->new(-format => 'nexus',
                                       -file   => ">");

         # convert tree formats from newick/phylip to nexus
         while(my $tree = $treeio->next_tree) {


       This interface describes the minimal functions needed to get and write trees from a data
       stream.  It is implemented by the Bio::TreeIO factory.
