A library for Evolutionary Computation algorithms
Evolve is a C library for metaheuristics algorithms. They are: genetic algorithm, In Vitro Fertilization genetic algorithm (IVF-GA), ev (a very simple metaheuristic introduced in Evolutionary Computation, by Kenneth De Jong), and some other implementation stubs.
Build & Install
You must install Autotools before attempting to build & install it.
$ autoreconf -i $ ./configure $ make $ make install
Running the examples
$ autoreconf -i $ mkdir -p build $ CPPFLAGS=-I$PWD/build/include LDFLAGS=-L$PWD/lib ./configure --prefix=$PWD/build --disable-shared $ make thirdparty $ make $ make install $ make examples $ examples/bin/2d-parabola $ examples/bin/m-01-knapsack examples/m-01-knapsack-instance.txt
Install Valgrind prior to running any further command. Also, make sure to build the library following previous steps for running the examples.
$ make tests
