Concurrent GARTH (Genetic AlgoRiTHms) using C++: A Framework for Concurrent GAs.

Continuous Integration is being run using Travis-CI.


This are the dependencies needed to use this library with its applications and automated building (Note: Version numbers are the latest that have been tested but are not necessarily the earliest versions that work correctly).

  • C++ compiler that implements the complete(ish) C++11 standard. These are the ones that have currently been tested:
    • GNU GCC 4.8
    • Clang 3.2
    • MSVC 18.0
    • Intel 14.0
  • CMake 2.8
  • Doxygen
  • Google Test
  • Python3
  • Pip
  • MPI (kind-of, not really used yet)

Debian-based Dependency Installation

$ sudo add-apt-repository ppa:ubuntu-toolchain-r/test -y
$ sudo apt-get update
$ sudo apt-get install build-essential g++-4.8 cmake libgtest-dev python3 python-pip libcr-dev mpich2 mpich2-doc
$ sudo apt-get --no-install-recommends install doxygen
$ pip install colorama
$ cd /usr/src/gtest; sudo cmake CMakeLists.txt; sudo make; sudo cp *.a /usr/lib; cd -

You may also need to set a few environment variables/aliases to use the new packages just installed. Most likely these:

$ export CC="gcc-4.8" CXX="g++-4.8"


Run at the root of the repo with the prefix needed for installation:

$ python3 --install-prefix="<INSTALL_DIR>"

If you just run the script with no arguments, it will create a local out-of-source build and clean up after itself when it is done. This is extremely handy for testing since all you have to do is run and see if anything fails. If not, everything will be cleaned up.

To keep the local build files around, supply the -k, --keep-build option.
