    This is possibly a newbie question.

    Are the number of chromosomes that we are passing same as the population size. And population size is the number of chromosome in one particular population?

    I am implementing my program assuming population size as the number of chromosomes in one population. All the example programs have num_chromosome=1. Can you please point out the significance of that particular variable.
