CLIPS programming language

17 Sep 2018, 17:59

Hello all,
I've recently become interested in CLIPS, which is supposedly the most widely used expert-system language. There is a DotNet wrapper for it. I've built several sample projects, there's an animated GIF below.

I've had some preliminary success running it from AHK, although I've been frustrated by trying to get variables back out from the CLIPS program run by the CLR object (passing variables to it is no problem).
Has anyone had any experience with CLIPS they'd care to share?

Thanks in advance,

Never heard of these "expert-system"s before. Cool.

Couldn't download the animated GIF for some reason.

I think the forum change wiped it out. Here it is again:

Don`t you think that Clips programming language is dead?
People should not be so quick to think of a programming language as dead. I will see and hear people say Basic, Pascal, or C is dead. Often this is fad chasing and company propaganda. Like Microsoft wants you to believe C, C++, Pascal/Delphi, and Java died because they are pushing C#. Sun/Oracle played the same game with Java, as if other programming languages were going to cease to exist. But, what happens is that new dialects of those old programming languages pop up or they go "quiet" for a while and then become popular again. Basic has so many new dialects and is still going strong. Pascal became Object Pascal. C/C++ still going strong as well, with many languages having similar syntax (Objective-C, Swift, Java, JavaScript, C#, Rust...). So even if it died (and yes some languages do), a lot of the syntax and concepts would live on in other descendant/similar languages.

As for CLIPS... You might want to check out SourceForge or GitHub.
