Given an adjacency matrix, converts it into edge list representation. This edge list can be written to a file for easy import into other software such as cytoscape.
Only the upper triangle is returned as it is assumed the matrix is symmetric. The edge list is returned as a data frame with 3 columns: 'From', 'To' and 'Weight'.
- An adjacency matrix.
- A boolean to indicate whether zero weight edges should be excluded from the edge list.
