PyAIML -- The Python AIML Interpreter
author: Cort Stratton

PyAIML is an interpreter for AIML (the Artificial Intelligence Markup
Language), implemented entirely in standard Python.  It strives for
simple, austere, 100% compliance with the AIML 1.0.1 standard, no less
and no more.

This is currently pre-alpha software.  Use at your
own risk!

For information on what's new in this version, see the
CHANGES.txt file.

For information on the state of development, including 
the current level of AIML 1.0.1 compliance, see the

Quick & dirty example (assuming you've downloaded the
"standard" AIML set):

	import aiml

	# The Kernel object is the public interface to
	# the AIML interpreter.
	k = aiml.Kernel()

	# Use the 'learn' method to load the contents
	# of an AIML file into the Kernel.

	# Use the 'respond' method to compute the response
	# to a user's input string.  respond() returns
	# the interpreter's response, which in this case
	# we ignore.
	k.respond("load aiml b")

	# Loop forever, reading user input from the command
	# line and printing responses.
	while True: print k.respond(raw_input("> "))
You can’t perform that action at this time.
