Reproduce(Population As Integer)


Purpose: This function makes a new generation in the specified population.  After a call to this function, the values of the chromosomes of individuals change, and previous values of fitness functions stored by PutFitness have no meaning.  After a call to Reproduce, the user must immediately set the fitness values of all individuals in the population.  Refer to the examples in Chapters 6 and 7 to see how this is done.



Population is the number of the population for which you are going to make a new generation.


Example: i = Reproduce(PopNum)


This example creates a new generation in a population whose number is stored in the PopNum variable.
