       cm2hmm - build a rigorous HMM-based filter from an existing covariance model (CM)


       cm2hmm  cmfile  hmmfile  background  [background  parameters] HMMtype optimizer [optimizer


       cm2hmm reads a covariance model (CM) from cmfile, constructs a hidden-Markov  model  (HMM)
       that  preserves  some  information of the CM and saves the HMM to hmmfile.  The HMM can be
       used as a rigorous pre-filtering step to searching with the CM.

       The CM file must be in the standard format output used by Infernal.


       --help Print brief help; includes summary of command-line parameters.

       background [background parameters]
              Select the model of background sequence.  uniform gives all bases equal probability
              (25%).   gc  <fraction>  specifies  the G+C content.  <fraction> should be a number
              between 0 and 1.  file <filename> loads the base distribution  from  a  file  in  a
              specific format.

              Specify the type of HMM to be used; options are compact and expanded.  Compact-type
              models are generally faster, but expanded-type models may provide better filtering.

       optimizer [optimizer parameters]
              Specify which mathematical optimizer is to be  used  to  create  the  final  model.
              Currently  the  only  option is cfsqp which takes two paramters: <B> <C>.  B=0, C=1
              are reasonable choices.  (See the CFSQP manual for further details.)
