Thank you for your help. But what's the format of the file to init the
population? I could not find it anywhere in the documents provided.

The initial population may be loaded from a file, for example:
pop.subpop.0.file = <filename>
specifies the the entire population 0 will be read from a file named

In linux at least, you may launch ECJ with
time java ec.Evolve ....
which will return all sorts of time statistics. I am not sure how to do
this in Windows, but there should be a simple solution (one simple
approach may be to slightly extend the ec.Evolve class to compute this
