       Bio::Matrix::IO::mlagan - A parser for the mlagan substitution matrix


         use Bio::Matrix::IO;
         my $parser = Bio::Matrix::IO->new(-format => 'mlagan',
                                          -file   => 'nucmatrix.txt');
         my $matrix = $parser->next_matrix;
         my $gap_open = $parser->gap_open;
         my $gap_continue = $parser->gap_continue;


       Use to read in and write out substitution matrix files suitable for use by mlagan.
