The Mneson Calculus is just a query language. At least as presented so far. Note these things are a bit in flux. To manipulate the graph the primitives are Connect (x, y), Disconnect (x, y) with the obvious semantics. With these primitives any graph may be constructed. With the Mneson Calculus any selection may be retrieved. Together with the topologies for semantic structures these form the underpinnings of Mneson. A host of languages can be created upon them. My personal prototype of Mneson is an Ada library. Then I use Ada normally, to glue querying and construction when needed, and make applications.

Then you see problems that do not exist, sorry. Clearly you are still very under the Myth. Received on Fri Nov 11 2005 - 15:21:42 CET
