GPC++ - Genetic Programming C++ Class Library

The GP kernel is a C++ class library that can be used to apply genetic programming techniques to all kinds of problems. An integral component is the ability to produce automatically defined functions as found in Koza's "Genetic Programming II". Technical documentation (postscript format) is included. There is also a short introduction into genetic programming.

Whats new: The documentation is also available in HTML format!

User Comments:

Documentation format other than postscript needed (for the operation systems written by Microsoft, ugh...). I did it! The documentation is now available in HTML format.
