|OK, I have revamped the stuff under the hood of the "weasel" demo. Hopefully this one will cause fewer problems for people, plus I've added a couple of convenience features. |
A Real "weasel" Implementation that is True to the Description by Richard Dawkins, unlike the fake "weasel" being discussed over at UD.
Additionally, when a stepback is detected, the current population is dumped to the "console" textarea for examination.
Looking at the output of one of the runs I've done for testing, I found this:
|Code Sample |
Gen. 90, 27 letters, METHINKS IT IS LIK A WEASEL
Gen. 91, 27 letters, METHINKS IT IS LIiE A WEASEL
Gen. 92, 28 letters, METHINKS IT IS LIKE A WEASEL
Notice the change between generations 90 and 91 of which letters match, even though the same number matched. No "locking" required.
Speactacular. Nice work Wesley.
