I know this is going to turn out to be a stupid question, but could
someone tell me the easiest way to store and retrieve the state of
the entire AI::Genetic colony, and parameters, to a disk file so it
can be read in and out at will?
I'm doing some constrained optimization experiments that can take
several days, even a week, to run in the background, but I have a
computer (Mac OS X 10.4.8) that is shared, and I need to install
software and restart it almost daily.
I would like to save the entire thing about every hour, but I can
handle the timing part myself.
