rGenetic

rGenetic is a genetic algorithm package for Ruby. The idea is to develop a package which is easily customizable, allowing simple integration into a problem require genetic algorithms or evolutionary programming. The suite will be developed and tested against traditional GA problems as a proof of concept. I am aware of Ruby/GA in SourceForge, which, from my understanding has similar goals. However, last I checked, it's documentation and support are in japanese. Beyond that, I feel that having more than one package with similar goals only strengthens the library support for Ruby. I will specifically develop rGenetic without examination of Ruby/GA, in order to develop a unique solution which will hopefully compliment the Ruby/GA project.
