MAGSY

MAGSY is a development platform for multi-agent system applications. Each agent in MAGSY has a forward-chaining rule interpreter in its kernel. This rule interpreter is a complete reimplementation of an OPS5 system but was further enhanced to make it more suitable for the development of multi-agent system applications. MAGSY is available by anonymous ftp from:

ftp.dfki.uni-sb.de

Subdirectory: pub/MAGSY/MAGSY

Until now there are the following files available:

REAME: the file you read

doc: most of the documentation which is availbale until now. This is not to much but please note that there are wonderful books on OPS5 (see below) and this is all you need to get started. The more sophisticated features of MAGSY you will be able to extract easily form the examples.

examples: files with small MAGSY sample applications.

install: simple installation script. Put install and the tar file for your system in a new directory and call 'install'.

linux directory with the tar file containing the MAGSY files for Linux (only tested with S.u.S.E. > 5.2).

solaris: directory with the tar file containing the MAGSY files for SOLARIS (5.6) systems.

sunos: directory with the tar file containing the MAGSY files for SUNOS (4.1.1 or later guaranteed) systems. The sunos files are still provided but no longer supported!
