5 The Programming Environment

The KnowledgeWorks programming environment is designed for the development of rules. KnowledgeWorks applications will typically contain a mixture of programming styles and so the LispWorks programming environment is available from the menus on the KnowledgeWorks Podium. This chapter deals with KnowledgeWorks specific tools but see the Common LispWorks User Guide for more details on the LispWorks tools.
