       wordfinder is a command line program from EMBOSS (“the European Molecular Biology Open
       Software Suite”). It is part of the "Alignment:Local" command group(s).


   Input section
       -asequence seqset

       -bsequence seqall

       -datafile matrixf
           This is the scoring matrix file used when comparing sequences. By default it is the
           file 'EBLOSUM62' (for proteins) or the file 'EDNAFULL' (for nucleic sequences). These
           files are found in the 'data' directory of the EMBOSS installation.

   Required section
       -gapopen float
           Default value: @($(acdprotein)? 30.0 : 30.0)

       -gapextend float
           Default value: @($(acdprotein)? 1.5 : 1.5)

   Additional section
       -width integer
           Default value: 16

       -wordlen integer
           Default value: 6

       -limitmatch integer

       -limitalign integer

       -lowmatch integer

       -lowalign integer

   Output section
       -outfile align

       -errorfile outfile
           Error file to be written to Default value: wordfinder.error
