lil-gp is a generic 'C' genetic programming tool. It was written with a number of goals in mind: speed, ease of use and support for a number of options including:

  • Support for multiple population experiments, using arbitrary and user settable topologies for exchange, for a single processor (i.e., you can do multiple population gp experiments on your PC).
  • lil-gp manipulates trees of function pointers which are allocated in single, large memory blocks for speed and to avoid swapping.
  • lil-gp now supports the use of ADFs.
