Hello,

Is there a way I could test this algorithm from the command line? like disabling the UI and passing the configuration as parameters?

Thank you

Rémi

Hi,

Currently, MEPX cannot do that.
But you can take one of the libmep examples and adapt it to accept parameters from the command line.

I plan to upgrade MEPX to accept parameters from command line, but in the first stage will accept XML files (which have the structure as a project) as input/output.
But this version is not yet ready to release.

regards,
Mihai

Hi,

awesome, I will have a look at that. If you want, we can work together on that command line version. Maybe we can create a new branch on github and start from there?

Thank you

The source code for the user interface part of MEPX is not currently available as public repository on GitHub.
I plan to make it public after I re-organize the code more.

Will update in 1-2 weeks.

regards,
Mihai

Hey,

If you are interested, I can make a CLI interface for hmep. Which is the task you are trying to solve?

Best,

Bogdan

Hello,

thanks for sharing your library. I am doing a review and testing various algorithms but the server I am using to run the tests has no graphical interface, only command line.

I have never used Haskell, but I might try it!

Regards,

Bogdan

So here I have implemented a basic version of command line interface:

Usage: hmep -f <input file> [-l|--length 30] [-m|--mutation 0.05] [-r|--var 0.1]
            [-c|--const 0.05] [-p|--population 200] [-t|--total 200]

Available options:
  -h,--help                Show this help text
  -f <input file>          Input file path. Format: comma-separated, two
                           columns.
  -l,--length 30           Chromosome length
  -m,--mutation 0.05       Mutation probability
  -r,--var 0.1             Probability to generate a new variable gene
  -c,--const 0.05          Probability to generate a new constant gene
  -p,--population 200      Population size
  -t,--total 200           Total number of iterations

Please note that I haven't implemented sub populations in this version.
