Bio::Phylo is a Perl module for the Bio::Phylo package for phylogenetic analysis using object-oriented perl5. In this file, methods are defined that are performed by other objects in the Bio::Phylo release that inherit from this base class (which you normally wouldn't use directly).
For general information on how to use Bio::Phylo, consult the manual (Bio::Phylo::Manual).
If you come here because you are trying to debug a problem you run into in using Bio::Phylo, you may be interested in the "exceptions" system as discussed in Bio::Phylo::Util::Exceptions. In addition, you may find the logging system in Bio::Phylo::Util::Logger of use to localize problems.
# Actually, you would almost never use this module directly. This is
# the base class for other modules.
# sets global verbosity to 'error'
Bio::Phylo->VERBOSE( -level => Bio::Phylo::Util::Logger::ERROR );
# sets verbosity for forest ojects to 'debug'
-level => Bio::Phylo::Util::Logger::DEBUG,
-class => 'Bio::Phylo::Forest'
# prints version, including SVN revision number
