Grammatical evolution implemented using C#

Install

Install-Package cs-grammatical-evolution -Version 1.0.4

Usage

The sample code belows show how to use the Grammatical Evolution to solve the spiral classification problem:

class Program
{
	static DataTable LoadData(string filename)
	{
		DataTable table = new DataTable();
		table.Columns.Add("X");
		table.Columns.Add("Y");
		table.Columns.Add("Label");

		int line_count = 0;
		using (StreamReader reader = new StreamReader(filename))
		{
			string line = reader.ReadLine();
			int.TryParse(line, out line_count);

			while ((line = reader.ReadLine()) != null)
			{
				string[] elements = line.Split(new char[] { '\t' });

				double x, y;
				int label;
				double.TryParse(elements[0].Trim(), out x);
				double.TryParse(elements[1].Trim(), out y);
				int.TryParse(elements[2].Trim(), out label);

				table.Rows.Add(x, y, label);
			}
		}
		return table;
	}

		//User can load BNF grammar from file or create programmatic ally
		pop.GERuleSet.LoadGrammar("grammar.bnf");

		Console.WriteLine(pop.GERuleSet.ToString());

		//Xianshun: Say if you implement a operator named "Move(X, Y)",

The GEConfig.xml and its child configuration files will be automatically generated if they do not exist, otherwise the configuration will be loaded from the existing GEConfig.xml and its child configuration files.

You can’t perform that action at this time.
