I am not familiar with CLIPS or JESS. And it has been a long, long time
since I have worked with expert systems. Yet, I have and I have built some
and some more general theorem provers. However, all of those have been in
a Lisp environment. With that prejudice, this comes to mind...
Something like that (done the way I have done it in the past) would need
some rich method representing information. That brings up something I have
been wondering about. Is there a library or style example for representing
recursive types in Revolution (perhaps type tagged)? That is, something
that can represent something as general as a lisp-like list?
I have considered using some arrays as an environment of references. I
have considered mixing in some binary into strings to create a simple way
to add structure. I have even considered text strings that are parsed
Has anybody had to address this? Any ideas?
