Dear BioPerl Users/Developers,

I have obtained a tree using a very large number of nodes
(1000 nodes) using the neighbor joining in PHYLIP. A small
test output looks like the following:

  !    +-------------------------------------------Mouse
       !                        +------------------Gibbon
                                !    +-------------Orang
                                     !   +---------Gorilla
                                         ! +-------Chimp

The outtree in Newick format is:


I am trying to obtain the cluster at different fork level of this tree.

The fork level goes as an user input. I looked into the link


But the Node connectivity methods described there does not apply
to the tree I have pasted above.

Any help / suggestions would be thankfully appreciated.

Thanks a lot in advance and looking forward to hear from you.
