##' Conduct the distance regression with or without the adjustment of
##' the covariates to detect the association between a distance matrix
##' and some independent variants of interest.
##'
##' The pseudo \emph{F} statistic based on the distance regression with
##' or without the adjustment of the covariates detects the
##' association between a distance matrix and some independent
##' variants of interest. A distance matrix can be transformed into a
##' similarity matrix easily.
##' @title Distance regression
##' @param simi.mat a similarity matrix among the subjects.
##' @param null.space a numeric vector to show the column numbers of
##' the null space in \code{x.mat}.
##' @param x.mat the covariate matrix which combines the null space
##' and the matrix of interest.
##' @param permute logical. If \code{TRUE}, the Monte Carlo sampling is used
##' without replacement; otherwise, with replacement. The default is
##' \code{TRUE}.
##' @param n.MonteCarlo the number of times for the Monte Carlo
##' procedure. The default is \code{1000}.
##' @param seed if it is not \code{NULL}, set the random number generator
##' state for random number generation. The default is \code{NULL}.
##' @return A list with class "\code{htest}" containing the following components:
##' \tabular{llll}{
##' \code{statistic} \tab \tab \tab \cr
##' \tab \tab \tab the observed value of the test statistic.\cr
##' \code{p.value} \tab \tab \tab \cr
##' \tab \tab \tab the p-value for the test.\cr
##' \code{alternative} \tab \tab \tab \cr
##' \tab \tab \tab a character string describing the alternative hypothesis.\cr
##' \code{method} \tab \tab \tab \cr
##' \tab \tab \tab a character string indicating the type of test performed.\cr
##' \code{data.name} \tab \tab \tab \cr
##' \tab \tab \tab a character string giving the names of the data.
