CartesianGeneticProgramming.jl can be installed through the Julia package manager
pkg> add CartesianGeneticProgramming.jl
Examples of usage are provided in
scripts. To run any of these examples, do
$ julia scripts/gym.jl
This will create and populate
logs folders, which store CGP
individuals and evolutionary logs, respectively.
Note that these examples have only been tested on Linux and have additional
dependencies which must be installed, like
CGP.jl comes with tests which can offer examples of detailed usage of the
different genetic operators and CGP extensions. To run all tests, use
pkg> test CartesianGeneticProgramming
Configuration is handled by
src/config.jl. Configurable options are read in
through YAML files (an example being
cfg/test.yaml). All possible node
functions are defined in
src/functions.jl and are populated in the
This repository is now intended only for floating point inputs and therefore no longer implements Mixed-Type CGP. The commit reference for the results in  is 096e843, however this requires Julia 0.6 and may no longer function. MTCGP is currently being rewritten at https://github.com/d9w/MTCGP.jl. This is done to separate heavy image processing package dependencies which are not necessary for base CGP.
