  abstract =     "Several techniques have been developed for allowing
                 genetic programming systems to produce programs that
                 make use of subroutines, macros, and other modular
                 program structures. A recently proposed technique,
                 based on the tagging and tag-based retrieval of blocks
                 of code, has been shown to have novel and desirable
                 features, but this was demonstrated only within the
                 context of the PushGP genetic programming system.
                 Following a suggestion in the GECCO-2011 publication on
                 this technique we show here how tag-based modules can
                 be incorporated into a more standard tree-based genetic
                 programming system. We describe the technique in detail
                 along with some possible extensions, outline arguments
                 for its simplicity and potential power, and present
                 results obtained using the technique on problems for
                 which other modularization techniques have been shown
                 to be useful. The results are mixed; substantial
                 benefits are seen on the lawnmower problem but not on
                 the Boolean even-4-parity problem. We discuss the
                 observed results and directions for future research.",
