Defines functions wTO

Documented in wTO

#' @title wTO
#' @description Calculates the weighted topologycal overlap (wTO)
#' between a set of Nodes and the Overlapping nodes. This function implements the method from Nowick (2009).
#' @param A Is the weighted adjency matrix (correlation matrix).
#' @param sign ("abs", "sign") if the user wants to use the absolute correlation or the signed correlation.
#' @return A matrix containing the wTO values.
