Function Synopsis

NewChrom = mutexch(Chrom, VLUB, MutRate)

Help text

 MUTation by eXCHange

 This function takes the current population, mutates each element
 with given mutation probability by exchanging it with another 
 element and returns the resulting population.

 Syntax:  NewChrom = mutexch(Chrom, VLUB, MutRate)

 Input parameters:
    Chrom     - A matrix containing the chromosomes of the
                current population. Each row corresponds to
                an individuals string representation.
    VLUB      - Matrix containing the boundaries of each variable.
                not used here, necessary for compatibility with
                real valued mutation
    MutRate   - Scalar containing the mutation rate / probability.
                if omitted or NaN MutRate = 1/size(Chrom,2) is

 Output parameter:
    NewChrom  - Matrix containing a mutated version of Chrom.
