Defines functions calACSstrStrict

# Internal function:
# Calculate the total number of all common subsequences between 2 strings
# Subsequences cannot be interrupted by any item, i.e. q-w is not a common subsequence of q-w-e-r and q-e-w-r due to the interrupting 'e' in the second sequence
# param strA First string
# param strB Second string
# param sep Delimiter separating each items in a sequence
# param dropFirstItem Boolean. If true, the first item in each sequence is excluded from counting all subsequences
# param ignoreLenOneSubseq Boolean. If true, all length one subequences are not counted as common subsequences
# param ignoreLenZeroSubseq Boolean. If true, the length zero subsequence (empty set) is not counted as a common subsequence
# return The total number of all common subsequences as an integer
