Extracts the minimum cost of a least-cost path by trimming blocks (straight segments of the path that appear in highly dissimilar regions of the sequences). Blocks inflate psi values when two sequences are similar but have very different numbers of rows. This function is for internal use of other functions in the package.

  least.cost.path = NULL,
  parallel.execution = TRUE



dataframe produced by leastCostPath.


boolean, if TRUE (default), execution is parallelized, and serialized if FALSE.


A named list with least cost values.
