genetic algorithm kit

the genetic algorithm toolkit is meant to be a quick way to incorporate genetic algorithms into max projects. you can either create the child's genetic material yourself (manually or randomly), or pass two parent sequences (in the form of a max list) to the gak object. you can then select how you'd like to manipulate this genetic material from a variety of processes (crossover, reverse, shift, transposition & increment/decrement) yourself, or allow the gak to make the decisions for you.

note that if you don't pass new parent sequences (or randomly/manually generate a child sequence) the next time around, the new parents will both be clones of the child. also note that gak only creates one child, but you can hook up a bunch of them if you really want a gaggle of children. then it's up to you to select which one you like best for the next generation.

many thanks to anthony palomba for the windows port.
