Refinement of a Single Rule

Many systems for inductive logic programming use an algorithm that consists of repeatedly refining clauses. Any of these systems could in principle be rewritten to make use of a query pack evaluation mechanism and thus achieve a significant efficiency gain. We first show this for a concrete algorithm for decision tree induction, then discuss the more general case.
