NeXTGene: A graphical user-interface for GENESIS under NeXTStep

  • Christian Jacob

Experimenting with genetic algorithm (GA) systems can be substantially supported by graphical user interface (GUI) frontends to GA-kernels. We briefly describe our ideas about what a GUI for evolutional systems might look like. Our first results in designing an interface with the help of NeXTStep’s Interface Builder 1 are presented.
