For a tree represented as a recursive hash, the crossover and mutation operators are fairly simple.

It looks like you have only binomial operators, so a binary tree. To arrive at a random node, start at the root, $tree, and pick a random key, "left" or right". Then ,e.g., $tree->{left} becomes the new root and pick another random key, etc. Continue walking the hash until you get to a terminal, which you can recognize as a non-reference. Alter that terminal to get a one-point mutation.

For a crossover, each node on the tree is a ref, so you can just exchange references:

$temp = $tree->{right}{left}; $tree->{right}{left} = $tree->{right}{right}; $tree->{right}{right} = temp;
For Boolean expression chromosomes, you will want to make sure that mutations and crossovers generate a syntatctically valid expression (I haven't checked your code for this).

That is the general idea. The implementation is left as an exercise :)

Use:  <p> text here (a paragraph) </p>
and:  <code> code here </code>
to format your post; it's "PerlMonks-approved HTML":

  • Are you posting in the right place? Check out Where do I post X? to know for sure.
  • Posts may use any of the Perl Monks Approved HTML tags. Currently these include the following:
    <code> <a> <b> <big> <blockquote> <br /> <dd> <dl> <dt> <em> <font> <h1> <h2> <h3> <h4> <h5> <h6> <hr /> <i> <li> <nbsp> <ol> <p> <small> <strike> <strong> <sub> <sup> <table> <td> <th> <tr> <tt> <u> <ul>
  • Snippets of code should be wrapped in <code> tags not <pre> tags. In fact, <pre> tags should generally be avoided. If they must be used, extreme care should be taken to ensure that their contents do not have long lines (<70 chars), in order to prevent horizontal scrolling (and possible janitor intervention).
  • Want more info? How to link or How to display code and escape characters are good places to start.
