'''What counts as a match or a mismatch?'''
:Only bases with a cigar values of M, X, or = can be counted as matches or mismatches. Cigar I, D, N, S, P, and H are NOT matches or mismatches.
:If either the reference or the read are 'N' or 'n', it is NOT a match or mismatch.
:It is a match if the reference and the read have the same base (both A/a, both C/c, both G/g, or both T/t). If they are different, non-'N', bases it is a mismatch.
'''What should the quality count as if the quality string is '*'?'''
:That is the purpose of the <code>defaultQualityInt</code> parameter.
