this has been done before over and over


I think if the OP could get his brainf*ck algorithm to produce a self printing
program in brainf*ck that would be quite amusing, but for real advances I
suggest he makes it generate itself. His fitness is fairly silly since it has no
idea of fitness except success; minimizing the cpu/memory/program length etc etc
are all additional measures that could be added/used.
