#' @title Matrix distance by distance and approach type.
#' @description To explain how to calculate the matrix distance by using \code{distance} and \code{approach} types.
#' @param list is a clusters list.
#' @param distance is a string. The distance type to be used.
#' @param approach is a string. The approach type to be used.
#' @param components is a clusters list. It contains every clusters with only one element. It is used to check if complementary condition is 'TRUE'.
#' @details This function is part of the divisive hierarchical clusterization method. The function calculates the
#' matrix distance by using the distance and approach types given.
#' @details The \code{list} parameter will be a list with the clusters as rows and columns.
#' @details The function avoids distances equal 0 and undefined clusters.
#' @details It also avoids distances between clusters that are not complementary because they can't be chosen to divide all the clusters.
