GAGS (Genetic Algorithms from Granada, Spain) is a Genetic Algorithm application generator and class library written mainly in C++.

As a class library, and among other thing, GAGS includes:

  • A chromosome hierarchy with variable length chromosomes. Genetic operators: 2-point crossover, uniform crossover, bit-flip mutation, transposition (gene interchange between 2 parts of the chromosome), and variable-length operators: duplication, elimination, and random addition.
  • Population level operators include steady state, roulette wheel and tournament selection.
  • Gnuplot wrapper: turns gnuplot into a iostreams-like class.
  • Easy sample file loading and configuration file parsing.
As an application generator (written in PERL), you only need to supply it with an ANSI-C or C++ fitness function, and it creates a C++ program that uses the above library to 90% capacity, compiles it, and runs it, saving results and presenting fitness thru gnuplot.

GAGS is superseded by EO.
