Defines functions sppDist

Documented in sppDist

#' Intra and inter-specific distances
#' 
#' Separates a distance matrix into its inter- and intra-specific components.
#' 
#' This function can be used to produce histograms and other charts exploring
#' the `barcode gap', such as in the examples below.
#' 
#' @param distobj A distance matrix.
#' @param sppVector The species vector (see \code{\link{sppVector}}).
#' @return A list with two elements: \item{inter}{A numeric vector containing
#' ALL inter-specific pairwise distances.} \item{intra}{A numeric vector
#' containing ALL intra-specific pairwise distances.}
