NAME

Algorithm::Evolutionary::Op::Selector - Abstract base class for population selectors

SYNOPSIS

    package My::Selector;
    use base ' Algorithm::Evolutionary::Op::Selector';

Base Class

Algorithm::Evolutionary::Op::Base

DESCRIPTION

Abstract base class for population selectors; defines a few instance variables and interface elements

METHODS

new( $output_population_size )

Creates a new selector which outputs a fixed amount of individuals. This goes to the base class, since all selectors must know in advance how many they need to generate

apply

Applies the tournament selection to a population, returning another of the set size. This is an abstract method that should be implemented by descendants.
