(I hope it's ok if I answer this)

Hello Ulises,

You need to break down the evolutionary cycle onto generational steps. 
That is, rather than calling ga.evolve(), which makes the whole 
evolutionary process in one go, use something like the following:


That way, after each generation, you can let your evalution function know 
that a generation has passed (for example, through a global variable, or 
through a call to the function that randomises your evaluation).

See "examples/ex16.C" for a complete example.

Hope this helps
