In this post John explained how to so with the latest version of CLIPS.
Running CLIPS on Android
Via here: CLIPS4Android and DROID-CLIPS
CLIPS Language Support for Visual Studio
It would be nice to have a lovingly supported CLIPS mode along with org-mode literate programming (babel) and a clear legal pedigree.
clips-mode 0.7 Release
Just put a new release of clips-mode out on Marmalade.
Changes are minor, just taking over Andrey’s wonderful contribution to the community. Cut over to GPLV3, added a build script, and started adding TODOs in the task list.
The Lisa Project
Lisa is a production-rule system implemented in the Common Lisp Object System (CLOS), and is heavily influenced by CLIPS and the Java Expert System Shell (JESS).
Great CLIPS and JESS Posts
Here are many great posts by John Lindberg.
A Bit about CLIPS
JESS is a superset of CLIPS. On Linux it is a little less obvious how to get the install because CLIPS seems to come with a powerful IDE, but not on Linux. Oh well, on Ubuntu you can install it with:
sudo apt-get install clips clips-common clips-doc
Installing it provides
- the interpreter
- a nice man page
- a help file accessible within the interpreter via ‘(help)
- /usr/share/doc/clips-common/CLIPS-FAQ a compressed FAQ file readable with zcat or zless or zless to read it.
- /usr/share/doc/clips-common/html/ Local copy of the main website with links out to stuff like documentation
- /usr/share/doc/clips-common/examples/ “A number of examples of CLIPS program are available so you can test the interpreter and learn how it works. You can, for example, load one of them with (load “/usr/share/doc/clips-common/examples/wordgame.clp”) and run it using (reset) and (run).”
CLIPS seems like a great place to start with learning at least parts of JESS. I’m guessing that there is a lot of good material between the docs and examples.
