to be read from. If it does not contain an absolute or
relative path, the file name is relative to the current

This function reads protein sequences in FASTA format.
The result character vector
The three returned argument are just different forms of the same output. If one is interested in a Mahalanobis metric over the original data space, the first argument is all she/he needs. If a transformation into another space (where one can use the Euclidean metric) is preferred, the second returned argument is sufficient. Using A and B is equivalent in the following sense.
Note that any different sets of instances (chunklets), e.g. 1, 3, 7 and 4, 6, might belong to the same class and might belong to different classes.
