### NAME
`
``
Algorithm::Evolutionary::Op::DeltaTerm - Termination condition for an algorithm; checks that
the difference of the best to a target is less than a delta
`
### CONTENTS
### SYNOPSIS
`
``
my $target = 1;
my $epsilon = 0.01;
my $dt = new Algorithm::Evolutionary::Op::DeltaTerm $target, $epsilon;
#$dt->apply( \@pop ) when the best fitness is 1 plus/minus 0.1
`
### Base Class
Algorithm::Evolutionary::Op::Base
### DESCRIPTION
Termination condition for evolutionary algorithm loops; the `apply`
method returns false when the first element in the array is as close
to the target as the differente indicated.
### METHODS
*new( CW$target[, CW$delta] )*
Creates a new terminator. Takes as parameters the target and the
epsilon (or delta, whatever you want to call it):
`
` `
my $target = 1;
my $epsilon = 0.01;
my $dt = new Algorithm::Evolutionary::Op::DeltaTerm $target, $epsilon;
`
Delta can be 0, which means that application of this operator will
return true only when the first element fitness is the same as the
target. Use this judiciously when your fitness is a floating
point number.
Will return true while the difference between the fitness of the first element
in the population and the target is less than `$delta`, true otherwise
`
` `
$dt->apply( \@pop ) == 1
`
if the target has not been reached. Population must be sorted before this.
### See Also
Algorithm::Evolutionary::Op::FullAlgorithm needs an object of this class to check
for the termination condition. It’s normally used alongside generation-type
objects such as Algorithm::Evolutionary::Op::Easy.
There are other options for termination conditions: Algorithm::Evolutionary::Op::NoChangeTerm and
Algorithm::Evolutionary::Op::GenerationalTerm.
