( #3333=superdoc: print w/ replies, xml ) Need Help??
Hhhmm, I've written my on vesion, with somewhat different operators (genes) to help with the speed of convergence. Actually, I changed the goal too, it now looks for an individual number, repedatively; it eventually prints ot JUST ANOTHER PERL HACKER. But I'm having a problem, quite often the populaion i overrun with exactly the same genes. I really need hlp figuring out how this is happening. The big differences are the choose and breed routines, which are called select and mate in this code. The mate routine selects some of the most fit oganisms, breeds them, and replaces some of the least fit organisms with the offspring. Here's the code:
#!/usr/bin/perl package GenePool; sub new { my $class = shift; my $self = {}; bless($self, $class); $self->{GENES} = [ '$x+=1;', '$y+=1;', '$X-=1;', '$y-=1;', '$X+=$y;', '$y+=$x;', '$x-=$y;', '$y-=$x;', ';' ]; return $self; } sub gene { my $self = shift; return ${$self->{GENES}}[rand(@{$self->{GENES}})]; } package Organism; sub new { my $class = shift; my $self = {}; bless($self, $class); $self->{LENGTH} = 12; $self->{GENES} = []; $self->{NEXTGEN} = []; return $self; } #create genes for this organism by selecting genes from the genepool sub initialize { my $self = shift; my $genepool = GenePool->new(); foreach (1..$self->{LENGTH}){ push(@{$self->{GENES}}, $genepool->gene()); } return; } sub set_nextgen { my $self = shift; @{$self->{NEXTGEN}} = @_; return; } sub age { my $self = shift; @{$self->{GENES}} = @{$self->{NEXTGEN}} unless $#{$self->{NEXTGEN} +} == -1; return; } sub get_genes { my $self = shift; return @{$self->{GENES}}; } #return code to be evaluated sub get_code { my $self = shift; my $code = ""; foreach(@{$self->{GENES}}){ $code .= $_; } return $code; } package Population; sub new { my ($class, $size) = @_; my $self = {}; bless($self, $class); $size++ if $size%2 == 0; $size+=2 if ($size+1)%4 != 0; $self->{SIZE} = $size; $self->{ORGANISMS} = []; $self->{FITNESSES} = []; $self->{OBJECTIVE} = ""; $self->{VERBOSE} = ""; $self->{MIDDLE} = 0; foreach (0..$self->{SIZE}){ my $organism = Organism->new(); $organism->initialize; push(@{$self->{ORGANISMS}}, $organism); } return $self; } sub set_verbosity { my $self = shift; $self->{VERBOSE} = shift; return; } sub get_verbosity { my $self = shift; return $self->{VERBOSE}; } sub set_objective { my $self = shift; $self->{OBJECTIVE} = shift; return; } sub get_objective { my $self = shift; return $self->{OBJECTIVE}; } #determine the fitnesses of each organism sub fitness { my $self = shift; my $f = $self->{FITNESSES}; my $i = 0; print STDERR "\nFITNESS OF GENEPOOL evaluation(code_value)\n" if $self +->{VERBOSE}; foreach my $organism (@{$self->{ORGANISMS}}){ my $val = eval('my $x = 1; my $y = 1;' . $organism->get_code() +); ${$f}[$i] = $self->evaluate($val); print STDERR ${$f}[$i] .
