As an addition test case that I'm using, I've taken the concepts in Genetic Programming or breeding Perls, and used them to develop the following code:
#!/usr/bin/perl -w use strict; use Algorithm::Genetic; use Data::Dumper; my @genes = qw{ $x+=1; $x=$y; $y=$x; $x|=$y; $x+=$y; }; my $target = 100; my $algo = new Algorithm::Genetic( { FITNESS => \&fitness, MUTATOR => \&mutate, REAP_CRITERIA => sub { $_[ 0 ]->{ FITNESS } }, MUTATE_CRITERIA => sub { (10000-$_[ 0 ]->{ FITNESS } )**2 } } ); my @initcode; foreach ( 0..10 ) { my @bits = map { int rand @genes } ( 0..10 ); $initcode[ $_ ] = \@bits; }; $algo->init_population( @initcode ); for (1..100) { print "GENERATION $_\n"; print "-------------\n"; print join "\n", map { eval_code( get_code( @$_ ) ).' : '.get_code +( @$_ ) } reverse $algo->get_population(); print "\n"; $algo->process_generation(); print "\n"; } sub mutate { my @clone = @{ $_[0]->{ DATA } }; if ( int( rand() + 0.5 ) ) { # mutate by switching a new op in my $pos = int rand @clone; my $newop = int rand @genes; while ( $newop == $clone[ $pos ] ) { $newop = int rand @genes; } $clone[ $pos ] = $newop; } else { # mutate by adding a new op in push @clone, $genes[ int rand @genes ]; } return \@clone; } sub fitness { my $code = $_[0]->{ DATA }; # Calculate the fitness; my $string = get_code( @$code ); my $calc = eval_code( $string ); return ( $calc - $target )**2; } sub get_code { my $string = 'my $x = 1; my $y = 1; '; $string = join '', $string, map { $genes[ $_ ] } @_; return $string; } sub eval_code { return eval( $_[0] ); }

While probably not as robust as the original entry, the solutions I'm getting are converging to the target value even after 100 generations, so something is working right...

Title:
Use:  <p> text here (a paragraph) </p>

to format your post; it's "PerlMonks-approved HTML":



  • Are you posting in the right place? Check out Where do I post X? to know for sure.
  • Posts may use any of the Perl Monks Approved HTML tags. Currently these include the following:
    <code> <a> <b> <big> <blockquote> <br /> <dd> <dl> <dt> <em> <font> <h1> <h2> <h3> <h4> <h5> <h6> <hr /> <i> <li> <nbsp> <ol> <p> <small> <strike> <strong> <sub> <sup> <table> <td> <th> <tr> <tt> <u> <ul>
  • Snippets of code should be wrapped in <code> tags not <pre> tags. In fact, <pre> tags should generally be avoided. If they must be used, extreme care should be taken to ensure that their contents do not have long lines (<70 chars), in order to prevent horizontal scrolling (and possible janitor intervention).
  • Want more info? How to link or How to display code and escape characters are good places to start.
