Abstract

A knowledge base (KB) is essentially a group of atomic knowledge objects such as rules, sources, frames, etc. Rules, for example, do not have an inherent order, other than their firing order, and that order will vary from one execution of the KB to the next. So, there is no natural static order. Consequently, the order for a printed listing of the contents of each object is somewhat difficult to define.
