  abstract =     "The standard method of obtaining a response in
                 tree-based genetic programming is to take the value
                 returned by the root node. In non-tree representations,
                 alternate methods have been explored. One alternative
                 is to treat a specific location in indexed memory as
                 the response value when the program terminates. The
                 purpose of this paper is to explore the applicability
                 of this technique to tree-structured programs and to
                 explore the intron effects that these studies bring to
                 light. This paper's experimental results support the
                 finding that this memory-based program response
                 technique is an improvement for some, but not all,
                 problems. In addition, this paper's experimental
                 results support the finding that, contrary to past
                 research and speculation, the addition or even
                 facilitation of introns can seriously degrade the
                 search performance of genetic programming.",
