       Bio::TreeIO::tabtree - A simple output format which displays a tree as an ASCII drawing


         use Bio::TreeIO;
         my $in = Bio::TreeIO->new(-file => 'input', -format => 'newick');
         my $out = Bio::TreeIO->new(-file => '>output', -format => 'tabtree');

         while( my $tree = $in->next_tree ) {


       This is a made up format just for outputting trees as an ASCII drawing.
