  Description     : library for sequence alignment using edit distance
 A lightweight and super fast C/C++ library for sequence alignment using
 edit distance.
 .
 Calculating edit distance of two strings is as simple as:
 .
  edlibAlign("hello", 5, "world!", 6,
             edlibDefaultAlignConfig()).editDistance;
 Features
 .
  * Calculates edit distance (Levehnstein distance).
  * It can find optimal alignment path (instructions how to transform
    first sequence into the second sequence).
  * It can find just the start and/or end locations of alignment path -
    can be useful when speed is more important than having exact
    alignment path.
  * Supports multiple alignment methods: global(NW), prefix(SHW) and
    infix(HW), each of them useful for different scenarios.
  * You can extend character equality definition, enabling you to e.g.
    have wildcard characters, to have case insensitive alignment or to
    work with degenerate nucleotides.
  * It can easily handle small or very large sequences, even when finding
    alignment path, while consuming very little memory.
  * Super fast thanks to Myers's bit-vector algorithm.
 .
 This package contains the shared library.
