I don't know what your eventual goals are but you might want to take a look
at bioperl-network. However, there are problems with this package. One, it
only parses DIP tab-delimited and PSI-MI and it does this last one only
partially (you will get the graph though). Two, it seems to have only a
single developer interested in it, that's me, and few users. In my Bioperl
experience projects like this tend to fade away.
