Musings of a Software Inventor
One of the greatest strengths of OCaml is in data structure manipulation, which is essentially what makes up a genetic programming framework. Thus OCaml is an excellent choice for such an endevor.
The goal of OGPF is to create a modular framework for building genetic programming systems in OCaml. It is additionally an experiment in modular framework design, making heavy use of Functors. OGPF seeks to be a clean, elegant, and efficient solution to the question "How do I do genetic programming in OCaml?"
The framework itself is now functional, but to be useful to others I must still implement some common components. For example, I am now implementing Koza-lisp style genotype (just simple functions and terminals) in a couple different ways; I need to implement a Koza-style population management scheme, and using these reproduce some Koza-style problems (straight from the Genetic Programming books, probably). There are still some modularity issues.
Other things that this thing needs (long-term stuff):
