Algorithm::MasterMind::Evolutionary_Base - Base class for evolutionary-based algorithms
use base 'Algorithm::MasterMind::Evolutionary::Evolutionary_Base';
Base class with some default functions for evolutionary algorithm based classes.
Returns the fitness for each combination, which combines entropy and the distance to a consistent combination.
Original fitness, used in one of the former papers
Create a new population, old version
Create a new population making sure that all strings appear only once.
Convert the whole population to a new alphabet, changing no-existent letters to random letters in the new alphabet.
Reduce population size (in case a partial solution has been found).
Issues the first combination, which might be generated in a particular way; in this case Knuth's way. Might be used as a default.
