In the future, all the concepts used for the chromosome class will be extended to the population class, implementing population operators as functors that act on the population class; an analog to the Population class for Simulated Annealing will be also included.
Using the GAGS library, a DDE (dynamic data exchange) client for MS Windows called Degas will be available soon, in such a way that the user has to program only a DDE server with the evaluation function. Examples will be provided for several Windows programming environments, like PowerBuilder, Visual Basic and Borland C.4ex++. In the same way, it could be extended as a sockets-based client for UNIX environments. A graphic interface using tcl/tk will be also included, so that the user can interact with it in an user-friendly way.
