Bio::MapIO::mapmaker - A Mapmaker Map reader


# do not use this object directly it is accessed through the Bio::MapIO system

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


This object contains code for parsing and processing Mapmaker output and creating Bio::Map::MapI objects from it.
