You might want to try the mKR language interface to
Cyc knowledge bases (http://mKRmKE.org/).
mKR is an English-like language.
It is implemented in the mKE program.
 
mKE connects to both the SubL interface and
the newer Concept Browser/Web Services interface.
 
P.S.
I'm not suggesting this re: efficiency, only re: a convenient,
user-friendly interface.

No. I think you are right and it will work, but I don't know what is the performance difference. I am interested in testing the performance of the Cyc inference engine. I was always under the impression that Java based implementations are slower than the original systems. I don't know if this is the case with ResearchCyc. Do you know anything about this?
 
Thanks you, regards,
Paul.
