  abstract =     "We propose an extension to the Genetic Programming
                 paradigm which allows users of traditional Genetic
                 Algorithms to evolve computer programs. To this end, we
                 have to introduce mechanisms like transcription,
                 editing and repairing into Genetic Programming. We
                 demonstrate the feasibility of the approach by using it
                 to develop programs for the prediction of sequences of
                 integer numbers.",
  notes =        "Also available as MRL Technical Report 93-03 11 pages.

                 225 bit GA, 5 bit grouping encode terminal or two arg
                 function, clean up by {"}editing{"} and {"}repair{"} to
                 produce variable length tree shaped prog. No looping,
                 recursion or memory. Demonstrated on learning sequences
                 of small integers, fails on primes.
