It seems that StandAloneBlastPlus is a higher level wrapper than
BlastPlus. Is it better to use StandAloneBlastPlus?

Essentially, what I need is to compare pairs of sequences. Note that I
want to use the bash Process substitution to avoid generating temp
files. Does StandAloneBlastPlus support this? If yes, would you please
how me what command to use?

blastn -query <(echo
-subject <(echo
