"""Code for calling ClustalW and parsing its output (DEPRECATED).

This module has been superseded by the Bio.AlignIO framework for
alignment parsing, and the ClustalW command line wrapper in
Bio.Align.Applications for calling the tool. These are both described
in the current version of the Biopython Tutorial and Cookbook.
This means Bio.Clustalw is now deprecated and likely to be
removed in future releases of Biopython.

A set of classes to interact with the multiple alignment command
line program clustalw. 

Clustalw is the command line version of the graphical Clustalx 
aligment program.

This requires clustalw available from:

ftp://ftp-igbmc.u-strasbg.fr/pub/ClustalW/.

functions:
o read
o parse_file
o do_alignment

classes:
o ClustalAlignment
o MultipleAlignCL"""

    Arguments:
    o file_name - The name of the file to parse.
    o alphabet - The type of alphabet to use for the alignment sequences.
    This should correspond to the type of information contained in the file.
    Defaults to be unambiguous_dna sequence.

    There is a deprecated optional argument debug_level which has no effect.

    This function is obsolete, and any new code should call Bio.AlignIO
    instead. For example using Bio.Clustalw, you might have:

    >>> from Bio import Clustalw
    >>> from Bio import Alphabet
    >>> filename = "Clustalw/protein.aln"
    >>> alpha = Alphabet.Gapped(Alphabet.generic_protein)
    >>> align = Clustalw.parse_file(filename, alphabet=alpha)
    >>> print align.get_alignment_length()
    411
    >>> clustalw_string = str(align)

    This becomes:

    >>> from Bio import AlignIO
    >>> from Bio import Alphabet
