It's a command line program.

Usage: distance_matrix_builder <options>
Where <options> may include:
   -in <path>      - Specify file with input sequences (stdin if omitted)
   -out <path>     - Specify the output file name (stdout if omitted)
   -n-threads <N>  - Use N threads (cores) (1 by default).
   -help           - Pring help message.

When executed without parameters, it tries to read sequences from standard input and prints distances to standard output. This is useful for re-directing the data from/to other programs.

If you have any questions, comments or suggestions, please contact me.
