Abstract

This paper presents a software package suited for investigating Parallel Genetic Programming (PGP) utilizing Parallel Virtual Machine (PVM) language as means of communicating distributed populations. We show the usefulness of PVM by means of an example developed with this software tool. The example has been run on several processors in a parallel way.
