Specifying nonlinear constraints in a genetic algorithm in SAS 9.2

My earlier post didn't print properly on the thread. This is what I was trying to say;

I have been trying to setup a nonlinear constraint for a genetic algorithm in SAS 9.2 for some time now.
The constraint is as follows;

(-0.3) LT mort(x[1],.,x[2]/12,x[3]) / mort(coeff[1],.,coeff[2]/12,coeff[3]) LT -0.1

where, LT stands for "Less than or Equal To"

Now, the nonlinear optimization calls like "nlpqn" let me specify nonlinear constraints with the "nlc" module. Do we have something similar for genetic algorithms?
