  abstract =     "A major drawback of evolutionary computation is that
                 only relatively small-scale solutions can be found
                 during the search process—it is currently impossible
                 to evolve a whole chunk of software. We propose a
                 method named evolutionary software improvement, which
                 makes it possible to take some module, or some aspect
                 of an existing software system, and improve just that
                 part using evolutionary computation. We apply
                 evolutionary software improvement to our
                 genetic-programming system Megavac, refining its
                 instruction set for a class of multi-input handling
                 problems. This allows us to develop problem-fitting
                 instruction sets in a meta-circular fashion, and leads
                 to surprising solutions evolved by Megavac for the
                 given class of problems.",
