[galib] Constrainted Optimization

I'm starting my experience with GAlib to solve a constrainted
optimization problem. That means, I have absolutely strict boundaries
for the optimization. The evolution will generate individuals which are
invalid and thus have to be removed from the population before the next
generation is created. Now I could just set a very bad cost function for
these individuals, but in this case, the population would sometimes
contain individuals which are no solution. So I would prefer to "kill"
these individuals - is there already a way within GAlib to do this, or
do I have to implement it by myself?

Thanks a lot for your help and 

Best Regards,
