Abstract

Mokum is an object-oriented active knowledge base system with which the behaviour of a prototype of an information and communication system can be simulated. The system described in this paper is the animation facility which was added to Mokum. Through this facility it is possible to see what is happening with the simulation using several windows, the most interesting one being a window which acts as a kind of movie screen.
