One and two point frequencies of a specified column or specified columns are computed for a given alignment.

1 2 3 |

`aln` |
alignment |

`i` |
reference column for the frequency computation |

`j2` |
columns to compute the two point frequency together with column |

`lett` |
character vector containing the unique alphabet of the alignment |

`cluster` |
snow cluster object created with |

The columns `j2`

are the specified columns (not `i`

) to compute the frequencies and the rows represent all possible two letter pairs according to the alphabet. The computation of `freq2p()`

is parallelized using `parLapply()`

from the package snow. If `cluster`

is left at its default value the computation is carried out in serial.

A matrix is returned for the `freq2p()`

. For `freq1p()`

, if no `i`

is specified, a matrix containing the frequencies of the symbols in the alignment is returned. For a certain `i`

a vector with the respective frequencies of the symbols is the result.
