Dear Richard Crozier, the url you have mentioned is now removed. Kindly update the link. Also if any of the member have used GEATxb to use GA and specially Island model is highly appreciable for the education and application point of view.

Well, it's ok, but why not use the matlab GA toolbox, or the free GA toolbox from the evolutionary computing team at the University of Sheffield ( This will search any number of variables, is open source, and has extensive documentation. I don't think this is really adding much to what's already available. In other words, a good project for yourself, but not much use to others, sorry. Perhaps if you specify in the description exactly what your code adds to what's already available?

There is not a enough documentation to use the files. Great effort, keep working.

Great effort and thanks for sharing. Do not let gloomy dumski bring you down. Keep it up.

I wish you had added a 'readme' file to explain what this bunch of files is doing and how to use it, instead of dumping a directory onto FEX.
