GALib: Genome Choice

	I would appreciate any advice on the following:

The best choice for genomes:
	I would like to have a "Chromosome" composed of 600 genes: Each
gene takes on integer values of the same range: say, {1,2,3,4,5}.
	IE., a "solution" string would look something like this:
 5 4 3 3 1 5 5 2 2 1 4 5 .... ..........(600 integer numbers).
	WHICH of the various options in GAlib would be best suited for
this coding of strings?  Any advice is appreciated.

	Is there a procedure by which one can run the Evolution for a
prespecified number of generations, then stop, and then restart from where
it was left off?

	In the same vein, is it possible to "insert" a user defined
"solution string" to replace the randomly generated population of
Chromosomes at the start of the run?
