Knowledge Base

Introduction

A knowledge base is very much like a buffer, except that it doesn't have the decay properties associated with buffers, and it may (if its properties are appropriately set) be accessed from any box within the scope defined by the compound containing the knowledge base, even if the box attempting to access it does not have appropriate arrows. It is anticipated that future versions of COGENT may include knowledge engineering tools for maintaining knowledge bases.

Properties

The precise behaviour of a knowledge base is determined by the values of a number of properties. All knolwedge bases have the following properties:

The Element Editor

Knowledge base elements are currently identical to buffer elements. They are edited with the standard buffer element editor.
