#' convert to a matrix of \code{conf.mat} class
#' \code{as.conflictmat} convert an edgelist or a win-loss raw matrix to a matrix of \code{conf.mat} class
#' @param Data either a dataframe or a matrix, representing raw win-loss interactions using either an edgelist or a matrix. 
#' By default, winners are represented by IDs in the 1st column for an edgelist, and by row IDs for a matrix. 
#' Frequency of interactions for each dyad can be represented either by multiple occurrences of the dyad for a 2-column edgelist, or
#' by a third column specifying the frequency of the interaction for a 3-column edgelist.
#' @param swap.order If the winner is placed in the 2nd column for an edgelist or as the column name for a matrix, specify as \code{TRUE}. By default, winners are placed in the first column of an edgelist or in the row names of a matrix.
#' @param weighted If the edgelist is a 3-column edgelist in which weight was specified by frequency, use \code{weighted = TRUE}. 
#' @return a named matrix with the \code{[i,j]}th entry equal to the number of times \code{i} wins over \code{j}.
#' @details \code{conf.mat} is short for "Conflict Matrix". \code{conf.mat} is 
#' a class of R objects. It is required to use \code{as.conflictmat} to convert your
#' raw edgelist or raw win-loss matrix into a matrix of \code{conf.mat} object before
#' using other functions to find (in)direct pathways and computing dominance probabilities.
#' Note, when using a 3-column edgelist (e.g. a weighted edgelist) to represent raw win-loss interactions, each dyad must be unique. If more than one rows are found with the same initiator and recipient,
#' sum of the frequencies will be taken to represent the freqency of interactions between this unique dyad. A warning message will prompt your attention to the accuracy of your raw data when duplicate dyads were found in a three-column edgelist.
