  abstract =     "One of the major approaches in the field of
                 evolutionary computation is genetic programming.
                 Genetic programming tackles the issue of how to
                 automatically create a computer program for a given
                 problem from some initial problem statement. The goal
                 is accomplished by genetically breeding a population of
                 computer programs in terms of genetic operations. In
                 this paper, we describe a genetic programming system
                 called GAPS. GAPS has the following features: (1) It
                 implements the standard generational algorithm for
                 genetic programming with some refinement on controlling
                 introns growth during evolution process and improved
                 termination criteria. (2) It includes an extensible
                 language tailored to the needs of genetic programming.
                 And (3) It is a complete, standalone system that allows
                 for genetic programming tasks to be carried out without
                 requiring other tools such as compilers. Results with
                 GAPS have been satisfactory.",
