The genprog package

[Tags:bsd3, library]

This package provides a genetic programming framework. Genetic programming is an evolutionary technique, inspired by biological evolution, to evolve programs for solving specific problems. A genetic program is represented by a value of an algebraic datatype and associated with a custom-defined fitness value indicating the quality of the solution. Starting from a randomly generated initial population of genetic programs, the genetic operators of selection, crossover, and mutation are used to evolve programs of increasingly better quality.
