FROBS: Object-oriented frame language for Common Lisp
FROBS is a merger between frames and objects. It is implemented in
Common Lisp and provides an object-oriented language as well as frame
type operations and a forward chaining rule system. The rule system
translates rule definitions into functions which can then be compiled
by the native Common Lisp compiler.
The frobs-doc.l file is something that someone else did to add
documentation strings to FROBS. It is not something that we load
automatically, so is separate. Having it be a separate file is fine.
It is not a document describing FROBS or FROLIC, which are in the tar
files as frobs.ps and prolog.ps.
