CLIPS 6.0 (C Language Integrated Production System) is an OPS-like forward chaining production system written in ANSI C by NASA. The CLIPS inference engine includes truth maintenance, dynamic rule addition, and customizable conflict resolution strategies. CLIPS, including the runtime version, is easily embeddable in other applications. CLIPS includes an object-oriented language called COOL (CLIPS Object-Oriented Language) which is directly integrated with the inference engine. Joseph Giarratano and Gary Riley's book, "Expert Systems Principles and Practice", comes with an MS-DOS CLIPS 6.0 interpreter.
Requires: ANSI C Ports: CLIPS runs on many platforms including IBM PC compatibles (including Windows 3.1 and MS-DOS 386 versions), Macintosh, VAX 11/780, Sun 3/260, and HP9000/500. Porting to any system with an ANSI C compiler should be easy. Copying: CLIPS is available from COSMIC at a nominal fee for unlimited copies with no royalties. (CLIPS is available free to NASA, USAF, and their contractors for use on NASA and USAF projects.) Folks who obtain CLIPS from COSMIC can do anything they wish with it, including redistribute it. Folks who obtain CLIPS directly from NASA are restricted to using it for US government purposes only.
