.hl File Extension

Developer: HeuristicLab
File type: HeuristicLab Storage File
You're here because you have a file that has a file extension ending in .hl. Files with the file extension .hl can only be launched by certain applications. It's possible that .hl files are data files rather than documents or media, which means they're not meant to be viewed at all.

what is a .hl file?

Data files saved using the HeuristicLab program are called HL files; which is why these files are also called HeuristicLab Storage Files. These files can either contain workbenches or definitions of problems. Since heuristic refers to decision making guidelines and serves as computer algorithm references, the program HeuristicLab is aimed to develop and test methods of optimization. This program was developed in 2002 and this plays a big part in heuristics usually developed by the Heuristic and Evolutionary Algorithms Laboratory (HEAL) members. The algorithms presented by this program are different from other heuristic programs because this program has the ability to shift the algorithm development capability from the software developer to the users as well as this program does not need comprehensive programming skills to be used. All the information created for the referencing computer algorithms as well as in decision-making is saved using the HL format. HL files can be opened on Windows operating system using the HeuristicLab software.

how to open a .hl file?

Launch a .hl file, or any other file on your PC, by double-clicking it. If your file associations are set up correctly, the application that's meant to open your .hl file will open it. It's possible you may need to download or purchase the correct application. It's also possible that you have the correct application on your PC, but .hl files aren't yet associated with it. In this case, when you try to open a .hl file, you can tell Windows which application is the correct one for that file. From then on, opening a  .hl file will open the correct application.

applications that open a .hl file



HeuristicLab is an extensible framework for evolutionary and heuristic algorithms that are independent of prototypes. It has a feature-rich and convenient GUI. You can pause/continue algorithms, load and save algorithms and problem to/from the disk. You can perform batch execution of experiments and algorithms. It features an experiment designer to execute and create multiple test runs, HeuristicLab Hive for distributed and parallel distribution of experiments and graphical algorithm designer to modify and create algorithms. It enables comparison and interactive and graphical analysis of results and parameters, easy integration of algorithms, problems and new operators through plug-in based architecture and parallel execution of experiments and algorithms on multi-core systems. It includes export charts in different image formats, flexible, generic and extensible data and algorithm model, copy/paste result tables to other applications, generic interface to couple with other applications, benchmark problems, optimization knowledge base and export of GP trees to LaTeX, MATLAB and other formats.

a word of warning

Be careful not to rename the extension on .hl files, or any other files. This will not change the file type. Only special conversion software can change a file from one file type to another.

what is a file extension?

A file extension is the set of three or four characters at the end of a filename; in this case, .hl. File extensions tell you what type of file it is, and tell Windows what programs can open it. Windows often associates a default program to each file extension, so that when you double-click the file, the program launches automatically. When that program is no longer on your PC, you can sometimes get an error when you try to open the associated file.
