SHOP2 -- Simple Hierarchical Ordered Planner 2 -- is a domain-independent planning system based on Hierarchical Task Network (HTN) planning. In the 2002 International Planning Competition, SHOP2 received one of the top four awards, one of the two awards for distinguished performance.
The git fork repo maintains the following branches of SHOP2:
cvs/mirror- The original CVS repo hosted on Source Forge (preserved for historical and pristine comparison purposes)
cvs/mirror-with-updates- Updates made to the CVS mirror (mostly a
READMEand some updates for Quicklisp)
svn/mirror- The mirror maintained by synching with the upstream git repo
svn/mirror+csv-history- The upstream SVN repo mirror combined with the original CVS VCS history
master- The CVS+SVN codebase+history with a top-level, Github-friendly
READMEand changes fur using SBCL with Quicklisp
This git fork was created from the SHOP2 SourceForce CVS repository using the following command:
$ git cvsimport -v \ -d:pserver:firstname.lastname@example.org:/cvsroot/shop \ -C . shop2
That covered the years 2004-2006.
Furthermore, subsequent history was incorporated from the following repo:
README file is part of the fork and provided for users of the Github web
UI more than anything else. The actual project
README is located in the
That file contains more detailed info, historical changes, etc.
To install and load, QuickLisp is used. If you don't have QuickLisp installed,
you can do so with the following
$ make quicklisp
This will help you get QuickLisp downloaded and installed for your Lisp, if you
haven't done so already. It will also set up the local QuickLisp
directory for you.
If you already have QuickLisp installed, you can set up the local directory with the following:
$ make install
To begin, start SBCL (e.g.), and use QuickLisp to load

We would be particularly interested in getting bug reports (or, better yet, patches!) from people who have tried to use SHOP2 with Lisps other than Allegro and SBCL and on platforms other than Linux. We would also be interested in hearing from people who have run the regression test suite.
