Knowledge Representation in Kernel Lisp

Conference paper
Part of the Informatik-Fachberichte book series (INFORMATIK, volume 291)


In this paper several examples for knowledge representation in DKLisp are presented. DKLisp is a kernel Lisp-language, which combines essential features from functional, procedural and object-oriented programming. It is not a new Lisp dialect. Its intended target is to be as compatible as possible with the ANSI Common-Lisp (ACL) Draft and the EuLisp Definition. We envision our planned industrial Lisp to be a scientific-technological language with features for software engineering, class-oriented programming and knowledge processing.
