       ntdpal - Provides Primer3's alignment functionality


       ntdpal [-g gval] [-l lval] [-m mval] [-f1, f2, f3] [-p] [-s] [-e] {seq1} {seq2} {mode}


       Ntdpal (NucleoTide Dynamic Programming ALignment) is a stand-alone program that provides
       Primer3's alignment functionality (local, a.k.a. Smith-Waterman, global, a.k.a.
       Needleman-Wunsch, plus "half global").


       -g gval
           gval is a (positive) float (.01 precision) specifying penalty for creating a gap
           respectively (the penalties are subtracted from the output score)

       -l val
           lval is a (positive) float (.01 precision) specifying penalty for lengthening a gap
           respectively (the penalties are subtracted from the output score)

           Causes the scoring matrix to be modified by dpal_set_ambiguity_codes.

           Causes the end position of the alignment in both sequences to be printed. Do not
           confuse with the 'e' mode.

       -f1, -f2, -f3
           Force specific implementations. -f2 forces use an implementation that might provide
           more informative error messages, possibly at the expense of some speed.

           Use a different scoring matrix: G and C matches = 3, A and T = 2, and mismatches =
           -0.5. (The default scoring matrix assigns 1 to a match, and -1 to a mismatch.)

           Causes the alignment to be displayed on stderr.

           causes only the score to printed.

       -m mval
           is the maximum allowed gap (default is 3).

       seq1 and seq2
           are the sequences to be aligned.

           is one of g, G, l, or L specifying a global, global end-anchored, local, or local
           end-anchored alignment respectively. For backward compatibility e is equivalent to G.
