Function Synopsis

NewChrom = mutrand(Chrom, VLUB, MutRate, VarFormat)

Help text

 MUTation RANDom

 This function takes the current population and produces
 the same number of randomly initialized individuals. 
 The resulting (random) individuals are returned.

 Syntax:  NewChrom = mutrand(Chrom, VLUB, MutRate, VarFormat)

 Input parameters:
    Chrom     - A matrix containing the chromosomes of the
                current population. Each row corresponds to
                an individuals.
                Only the number and size of individuals is used.
    VLUB      - Matrix containing the boundaries of each variable.
                Used here for thge initialization boundaries.
    MutRate   - Scalar containing the mutation rate / probability.
                if omitted or NaN MutRate = 0.7/size(Chrom,2) is
                Not used here!
    VarFormat - Format of variables (real, integer, binary, permutation)
                (See description of GEATbx parameter Variable Format)

 Output parameter:
    NewChrom  - Matrix containing the new (random) individuals.
