DiagonalTable.hh

// Copyright 2008 Martin C. Frith

// This struct records coverage of "diagonals" by gapless alignments,
// when comparing two sequences.  The diagonal is the coordinate in
// one sequence minus the coordinate in the other sequence.  We assume
// that one sequence is scanned sequentially, and the other is
// accessed randomly.  We record the furthest sequential position
// covered so far in each diagonal.  This lets us avoid triggering
// gapless alignments in places that are already covered.

// Since the number of diagonals may be huge, we map them to a smaller
// number of bins.  To keep the bin populations small, when checking
// if a position is covered, we discard information about earlier
// sequential positions.
