NAME

Algorithm::Evolutionary::Individual::Any - Wrapper around any Perl class, turns it into a Chromosome

SYNOPSIS

    use Algorithm::Evolutionary::Individual::Any;
    use Class::Name; # Your class here; it's required if not included anyways

    my $indi = new Algorithm::Evolutionary::Individual::Any Class::Name $class_args ; 

    $indi->Fitness( $fitness );
    print $indi->Fitness();

Base Class

Algorithm::Evolutionary::Individual::Base

DESCRIPTION

Bitstring Individual for a Genetic Algorithm. Used, for instance, in a canonical GA. That does not mean it can be used for mutation or crossover; normally you'll have to write your own classes

METHODS

new( $base_class, $base_class_args )

Creates a new individual by instantiating one of the given class with the arguments also issued here, which are forwarded to the class constructor.

Atom([$index])

No matter what you write, it will return the object wrapped. You can subclass and overload, however, but then you win nothing to use this class; you're better off creating a new one altogether

size()

Returns 1. Here for compatibility
