#' Make all sequences the same length
#' 
#' Coerces all sequences in a DNAbin object to the same length.
#' 
#' When \code{mode = "shortest"}, the alignment is truncated at the length of
#' the shortest sequence. When \code{mode = "longest"}, the alignment is
#' extended to the end of the longest sequence, with shorter sequences filled
#' in with \code{"fill"}s.
#' 
#' @param DNAbin An object of class \code{DNAbin}
#' @param mode Character vector. Options of "shortest" or "longest"
#' @param range Numeric vector of length 2. Index of the bases where the new
#' alignment should begin and end
#' @param fill Character to fill the extra bases in short sequences. Default of
#' "" (blank). Recommend that only "-" (gap) or "?" be used
#' @return A DNAbin object in matrix format.
