Do you mean multidimensional scaling? That is, do you want to get an
n-dimensional mapping of points so that the distances in the map
correspond to your distance matrix, as an alternative to a hierarchic
clustering (tree)? I am not quite sure about your desires. If you need
multidimensional scaling, check the nearest standard statistical package
(SAS, SPSS, S-plus, Statistica, Genstat...) or get R
(http://cran.r-project.org/) or KYST from the nearest netlib archive.
