                 (SAW) technique can be applied in genetic programming.
                 The SAW-ing mechanism has been originally developed for
                 and successfully used in constraint satisfaction
                 problems. Here we identify the very basic underlying
                 ideas behind SAW-ing and point out how it can be used
                 for different types of problems. In particular, SAW-ing
                 is well suited for data mining task s where the fitness
                 of a candidate solution is composed by `local scores'
                 on data records. We evaluate the power of the SAW-ing
                 mechanism on a number of benchmark classification data
                 sets. The results indicate that extending the GP with
                 the SAW-ing feature increases its performance when
                 different types of misclassifications are not weighted
                 differently, but leads to worse results when they
