Source code can be found here.
A limited version of the application is available online here.
In GNU/Linux, the program can be compiled from source by invoking
$ ./mosal seq1_file seq2_file [gaps|indels] [dp|dpp -b=NUMBER] [-ss=FILE] [--no-traceback]
||path to the 1st sequence file (FASTA format)|
||path to the 2nd sequence file (FASTA format)|
||use Dynamic Programming|
||use Dynamic Programming with pruning (need to specify -b=NUMBER)|
||use substitution score(ss) instead of #matches (path to the ss table)|
||specify the number of bounds for pruning version|
||output only the scores without the alignments|
