## Random sequences generation

### Description

Generates random sequences.

### Usage

```
seqgen(n, length, alphabet, p)
```

### Arguments

`n` |
number of sequences to generate |

`length` |
sequences length |

`alphabet` |
the alphabet from which the sequences are generated |

`p` |
an optional vector of probabilities for the states in the alphabet. Must be of the same length as the alphabet. If not specified, equal probabilities are used. |

### Details

Each sequence is generated by choosing a set of random numbers (with min=1 and max=length of the alphabet) using the `runif`

function. When the probability distribution is not specified, the uniform probability distribution giving same probability to each state is used to generate the sequences.

### Value

a sequence object.

```
seq <- seqgen(1000,10,1:4,c(0.2,0.1,0.3,0.4))
seqstatd(seqdef(seq))
```
