There are many different genetic programming (GP) frameworks that can be used to implement algorithms to solve a particular optimization problem. In order to use a framework, users need to become familiar with a large numbers of source code before actually implementing the algorithm, adding a learning overhead. In some cases, this can prevent users from trying out different frameworks. This paper discusses the implementation of a code generator in the EpochX framework to facilitate the implementation of GP algorithms. The code generator is based on the GP defini- tion language (GPDL), which is a framework-independent language that can be used to specify GP problems.
