(ftp://gatekeeper.dec.com/pub/plan/Life.tar.Z) - Wild_LIFE interpreter from Paradise project at DEC's Paris Research Lab
LIFE is an experimental programming language with a powerful facility for structured type inheritance.
It reconciles styles from functional programming, logic programming, and object-oriented programming.
LIFE implements a constraint logic programming language with equality (unification) and entailment (matching) constraints over order-sorted feature terms.
The Wild_LIFE interpreter has a comfortable user interface with incremental query extension ability.
It contains an extensive set of built-in operations as well as an X Windows interface.
A semantic superset of LOGIN and LeFun.
Syntax is similar to prolog.
