  abstract =     "To evolve structured programs we introduce H-PIPE, a
                 hierarchical extension of Probabilistic Incremental
                 Program Evolution (PIPE). Structure is induced by
                 {"}hierarchical instructions{"} (HIs) limited to
                 top-level, structuring program parts. {"}Skip nodes{"}
                 (SNs) inspired by biology's introns (non-coding
                 segments) allow for switching program parts on and off.
                 In our experiments H-PIPE out- performs PIPE, and SNs
                 facilitate synthesis of certain structured programs but
                 not unstructured ones. We conclude that introns can be
                 particularly useful in the presence of structural
