The \eslmod{scorematrix} module implements standard residue pairwise
alignment scoring systems (such as BLOSUM matrices), and their
probabilistic interpretation \citep{Altschul91,YuAltschul03}.
Table~\ref{tbl:scorematrix_api} lists the functions in the
\eslmod{scorematrix} API. The module implements one object,
\ccode{ESL\_SCOREMATRIX}, which holds a score matrix with integer
scores.

\subsection{An example of using the scorematrix API}
Figure~\ref{fig:scorematrix_example} shows an example of reading a
matrix file from disk, reverse engineering it \citep{YuAltschul03} to
obtain its target probabilities, background frequencies, and lambda,
then printing information about it:
