At the core, the difference is the data model used to represent things. LISP uses linked listed which can be nested. ProLog also seems to have lists, but I am unsure of its fundamental data methodology. My LISP-like interface (still in early dev) is built on top of a data model that more similar to RM in terms of functionality. Received on Wed Apr 12 2006 - 23:22:20 CDT
