A message from the comp.ai.genetic FAQmaster.

This message is for people who are (relatively) new to this newsgroup.

There is a `Frequently Asked Questions list' (FAQ) for comp.ai.genetic,
titled "The Hitch Hikers Guide To Evolutionary Computation". This
contains a vast amount of information, primarily aimed at newcomers. The
plain text version of guide is in six parts, and is posted to the net
(comp.ai.genetic, comp.answers and news.answers) every three months. The
last posting was on September20th. The next posting is due on December 20th.
If you'd like a copy, and can't wait that long, it can be retrieved from
various archives in various ways. Details below.

There is also a HTML version of the guide, available via the World Wide
Web. This includes links between questions and links to glossary entries,
among other things. Details below.

If you have information which could usefully go into the guide, or any
corrections, send them to me at: david.beasley@iee.org. Please include
in the subject line: HHGTEC, and say which question your comments relate to.
All contributions/help welcome. (Note: DO NOT simply REPLY to this message.
The address which this message comes from is simply a receptacle for junk
mail!).

If you have any questions which you'd like to be answered in the FAQ,
post them to comp.ai.genetic first. If any sensible answers are
forthcoming, let me know and I'll include the information in the FAQ.
