**Algorithm::Evolutionary::Individual::Base - Base class for chromosomes that knows how to build them, and has some helper methods.**

Base class for individuals, that is, "chromosomes" in evolutionary computation algorithms. However, chromosomes needn't be bitstrings, so the name is a bit misleading. This is, however, an "empty" base class, that acts as a boilerplate for deriving o...
