The new network divide instruction functions as in the original Tierra, if there is a zero value in a register (specified in the file). However, if there is a non-zero value in the register, the daughter will be sent to the machine whose IP address is specified in the register. In this case, the memory block occupied by the daughter code on the local node will be freed, and the code located there will be randomized.
