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

DESCRIPTION
