=head1 NAME

Bio::Matrix::Mlagan - A generic matrix with mlagan fields

=head1 SYNOPSIS

  # See L<Bio::Matrix::Generic> for most methods.
  # These are relevant for mlagan IO:
  $matrix->gap_open(-400);
  $matrix->gap_continue(-25);

=head1 DESCRIPTION

This is based on Bio::Matrix::Generic, differing by storing gap_open and
gap_continue data members to allow mlagan IO (see Bio::Matrix::IO::mlagan).
(Those values are 'outside' the matrix.)

It also limits the structure to a 6x6 matrix with row & column names 'A', 'C',
'G', 'T', '.' and 'N'.

=head1 FEEDBACK

=head2 Mailing Lists

User feedback is an integral part of the evolution of this and other
Bioperl modules. Send your comments and suggestions preferably to
the Bioperl mailing list.  Your participation is much appreciated.

=head2 Support 

Please direct usage questions or support issues to the mailing list:

I<bioperl-l@bioperl.org>

rather than to the module maintainer directly. Many experienced and 
reponsive experts will be able look at the problem and quickly 
address it. Please include a thorough description of the problem 
with code and data examples if at all possible.

=head2 new

 Title   : new
 Usage   : my $obj = Bio::Matrix::Generic->new();
 Function: Builds a new Bio::Matrix::Generic object 
 Returns : an instance of Bio::Matrix::Generic
 Args    : -values            => arrayref of arrayrefs of data initialization
           -matrix_id         => id of the matrix
           -matrix_name       => name of the matrix
           -matrix_init_value => default value to initialize empty cells
           -gap_open          => gap open penalty (int)
           -gap_continue      => gap continue penalty (int)

           NB: -rownames and -colnames should not be given here, since they are
           always being set to 'A', 'C', 'G', 'T', '.' and 'N'.
